Community Arts Center

Art-Making Experiences for All Ages

The CAC houses the community arts staff and education outreach program. Preparation for signature community events, including Parade the Circle, Chalk Festival, and Winter Lights Lantern Festival, will take place at the CAC, connecting this space to the culminating events at the museum. The Community Arts Center gives the museum a dedicated space to properly store large puppets, costumes, art-making supplies, and more. Visitors to the center may view Parade the Circle: Celebrating 30 Years of Art and Community and enjoy independent art making and other programming.
