We present exhibitions, theater, concerts, classes and other programs, and provide space for artists through a nationally recognized residency program. Our growing campus includes a 16,000sf main facility with galleries, a theater, classrooms, artist studios, a bookstore and a roof terrace. A former guest house next door and an additional home nearby provide housing for visiting and resident artists.
