The Beloit Art Center (formerly the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator) is seeking a new logo to visualize its new name. To accomplish this, a contest will be held in which the public can submit their ideas to the board. The contest is open to all ages and will culminate in the top three entries being on display on May 1st at our First Friday gallery night. The winner of our logo contest will be announced that evening and awarded a $100.00 cash prize.
The Beloit Art Center has provided a home for the arts in downtown Beloit since 1999. We look forward to our continued partnership with the community and regional artists as we maintain a center to teach, display and promote art through providing art studios, hosting gallery shows, events and classes.
The new logo design needs to visually capture the essence of the Beloit Art Center.
We look forward to seeing your designs!

We also are seeking picture frames that can be reused to frame art work created by local high school students who show their work in our gallery each April when we host the high school art show.

Since 1999, the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator has provided a home for emerging artists to create and show their work and for the community to enjoy a vibrant visual art experience. Now we are ready to take our past successes and apply them as momentum for the future. As such, we are announcing the launch of a new name: Beloit Art Center.
Although our name is changing, we will continue to maintain a center to teach, display and promote art through events, classes, gallery and studio space in partnership with the community and regional artists. To date, we have expanded our gallery space to include the Bell Gallery. This smaller gallery is ideal for the artist who may not have enough work to fill our larger main gallery. Our main gallery is booked with exciting shows through 2018. Additional studios have been added and we have achieved an almost 100% occupancy rate.
Located at 520 E. Grand Avenue in downtown Beloit, we look forward to the continued support of the community as we work towards purchasing our current location, doing some necessary remodeling and expanding our offerings to the public. We hope you will join us the First Friday of each month as we introduce the community to the works of a new artist.
