Arts Can't Be Contained

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. 

Strathmore is dedicated to helping the arts to thrive in our community. That means venturing beyond our campus to both create and support inspiring programs that serve our neighbors in schools, community centers, parks, retirement communities, and anywhere else people gather. Read on to learn about educational programs and performance opportunities happening throughout our county.
