State of the Art Performing Arts Center
Brooks/Isham Performing Arts Center (BIPAC) is a hidden gem located in Kirtland, NM only 10 minutes from downtown Farmington. With state of the art lighting and sound equipment, our venue can seat up to 800 people.
We can accommodate:

Celebrating Arts and Education
BIPAC is affiliated with Central Consolidated School District #22 and we work with young audiences and artists to ensure that they are being given the very best arts education that we have to offer.
We present many national and international touring productions throughout the year, including:
- live theater
- Broadway musicals
- bands, vocalists, and more.
We welcome anyone and everyone to join us in a celebration of the arts!

Children: All patrons entering the venue for a ticketed event must possess a valid ticket, if a seat will be occupied. Although it may be possible for a small child to sit in the lap of an adult, please be considerate of those sitting next to you.

Fire/evacuation notice/first aid: If you are instructed to evacuate the building in the event of an alarm, you are required to do so in a quick and orderly fashion. The exit sign nearest your seat is the shortest route to the outside of the Hall. For first aid, please contact the nearest usher.

It is the management's policy to begin performances at the advertised times. Patrons leaving their seats during a performance may have to wait in the lobby for a period of time before re-admittance to the venue.
