The longevity of serving our cultural artistic community speaks to the need for such an organization. Through many changes, the Art Center has been able to evolve into a place where artists and art patrons can gather to create and appreciate the fine work that is made here in the area. With a diverse audience of participants of all skill and age levels, the center has been growing to serve a greater population. A record number of over 50,000 people visited or took classes in the last year.
