Celebrating The Arts

Founding member of The EDGE Improv, Frank Buxton passed peacefully on January 2. He was a steady source of laughter and inspiration at Bainbridge Performing Arts for nearly 25 years and will be sorely missed by BPA’s board, staff, patrons, and community of artisans. His spirit will continue to guide us with humor, humanity, and wisdom. 

Many friends have asked us how to make a gift in Frank’s honor. The family has asked us to point people to the organizations Frank cherished most: Bainbridge Performing Arts, Port Townsend Film Festival, San Francisco Silent Film Festival, and Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. The Hot Dog! Fund, founded by Frank Buxton and Cynthia Sears, is held at the Bainbridge Community Foundation and benefits the artistic and capital excellence of Bainbridge Performing Arts.
