Arts Can't Be Contained

Introducing Bloom, the next chapter in the unfolding legacy of Strathmore, and our most important undertaking yet. Bloom is more than an initiative, it’s an ecosystem. It’s an unrelenting belief in the power of the arts and a fierce conviction that each of us deserves access to them. With programs and events for people of all ages, Strathmore is now venturing beyond our campus, and we invite you to join us in our mission.
