Baksı Museum, one of the most extraordinary museums in the world, bringing together traditional arts and modern arts, BMC, one of the leading companies of the Turkish automotive industry, has joined forces to meet people living in Bayburt and surrounding provinces with culture and art. BMC gave a bus to the museum to provide access to the Baksı Museum.
Baksı Museum, which acts as a unique cultural interaction center on the hill in Bayburt, outside the city's 45 kilometer, continues to add value to its geography. Turkey is one of the leading companies in the automotive industry and is working tirelessly to Turkey over the years 50 BMC also provides full support for Bakshi Museum. The people living in the challenging geography of Bayburt and the surrounding regions will be transported to the Baksı Museum in order to meet culture and art by BMC's gift.
The focus of the Baksı Museum is human and its values
Founder of Baksı Museum Dr. Hüsamettin KOÇAN explained the importance of the bus, which is a gift to the museum, for Bayburt and the surrounding provinces:
“Baksı Culture and Art Foundation started its museum studies in Bayraktar Village, formerly known as Baksı, 45 km to Bayburt, the smallest province in Anatolia. The opening of the Baksı Museum in 2010 is not a coincidence. It is aimed to find solutions to the cultural alienation problems of the region, to the fractures and chaos caused by the social erosion caused by intensive migration. The focus of the Baksı Museum has always been human and its values. Baksı Museum was established to reach people on a hill in the Bayraktar Village of Bayburt, which caused the questioning of the energy that will be added to the art and human relations by the assembly institutions that were established in different regions with different models or repeated in the centers. But communication cannot only be done with intent, but also means of communication are needed. A special opportunity provided by BMC for the Baksı Museum to reach the surrounding mountains and cities brought the museum closer to each other by winding roads leading to the mountains. This great opportunity served a great social purpose by opening the main roads that seemed to be blocked to reach the people of Baksı. This value given by BMC to the Baksı Museum will have important consequences for future generations. I would like to thank BMC on behalf of our museum and the people of the region. ”
Taha Yasin Öztürk, a member of the Board of Directors of BMC who expressed satisfaction with the investment they made for meeting the people of the region with culture and arts, said:
"Turkey's leading local and national brands as BMC, is half a century since our organization is taking every step for the future of our country, and we continue to work endlessly for our country. We use our expertise and know-how since 1964 for our work with our dynamic and strong human resources, foreseeing our customers' expectations and future needs. While we do all this, we never forget that we have a great responsibility towards our nation as much as our responsibility to our employees and customers. We are very happy to support a project which was founded under the leadership of volunteers who love their homeland and people like Baksı Museum and whose sole purpose is to benefit the society. We hope that the bus we deliver to the Baksı Museum will be beneficial to our people in Bayburt and the surrounding areas. ”
