A special edition e-publication covering the exhibition is made available to over 19,000 journalists, writers, curators, collectors, gallery and studio directors in the US and abroad. In addition, our outreach efforts extend beyond our own growing BECA network. This extended outreach for each BECA ICAD exhibition results in the exposure of exhibiting artist’s + designer’s work to over 750,000 members of the local, regional, national and international art + design communities.

BECA is an acronym for Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art and the core belief system at The BECA Foundation is that “New art + new design fuels the best of what’s yet to come on this planet.” Some of you may know that The BECA Foundation is in the early development phase of BECA ICAD (International Center for Art + Design), the world’s first large scale exhibition facility dedicated to the exhibition of works by both emerging artists AND emerging designers from around the world. In the meantime, exhibitions will continue to be held at the current exhibition space located at 527 St. Joseph Street, New Orleans, LA across from the Contemporary Arts Center where exhibitions have been held since January 2008.
