The Bing Arts Center has become an important community cultural resource since opening in June of 2010. Independent musical performances, film screenings, and art exhibitions have found a home at this vibrant alternative hub. Imaginative, eclectic and diverse programming has made the arts much more accessible to residents and visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Generous financial support has made the development of the Bing possible. Donations of money and time by organizations, businesses, and individuals allow the creative programming to grow and flourish.

We would especially like to thank:

State Rep. Cheryl Coakley-Rivera for her efforts in securing Phase One funding.

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno & the City of Springfield for providing CDBG facility renovation funding that enabled us to receive our certificate of occupancy.

The Community Foundation of Western Mass and TD Bank for additional renovation funding.

Hampden Bank Foundation for initial and continuing programming funding.

The following organizations and businesses have been instrumental to the project’s progress:
