About BAF

The mission of the Beaux Arts Foundation is to bring various forms of arts and humanities to the community of Lexington, advocate for the accessibility of arts and diversity to the general public, and to support charities that promote the livelihood of Kentuckians through public celebratory events.


Founded in 1969, the Beaux Arts Foundation has raised thousands for charities. The Beaux Arts Foundation is one of the largest student-run non-profit organizations in the state of Kentucky. The idea behind the Beaux Arts Foundation is to promote diversity and originality while indulging in various performing talents from across the nation, but particularly the Lexington area as performers typically include local musicians and artists.


In Lexington, KY, Beaux Arts Foundation hosts multiple events to promote the arts while raising money for charities in the area. Events hosted by the Beaux Arts Foundation have included the Beaux Arts Ball and Fall Ball among countless others.
