Mission The mission of Burlington City Arts is to sustain and enhance the artistic life of the greater Burlington area. About Us Burlington City Arts (BCA) has served the cultural and artistic needs of the Greater Burlington area for more than 25 years. Our vision is to fuse a dynamic relationship between the arts and community, to nurture creativity and imagination, and to ignite a passion for learning through the arts. We run a range of arts programs from the Firehouse Center for the Visual Arts and throughout the city, and have established the Firehouse Gallery as one of the few exhibition spaces in the state dedicated to showcasing contemporary art. Coupled with our commitment to accessibility, the Firehouse Center for the Visual Arts and BCAs Print + Clay Studio enable us to present an integrated series of art experiences that help set us apart from other art centers across the country and cement Burlingtons reputation as one of Americas most livable cities for the arts.
