CALENDAR OF EVENTS

A visit to the Fine Arts Center can be something planned for months (and our most popular shows and classes sell out quickly, so a bit of planning can put you ahead of the pack), or it could be delightfully spontaneous. With so many things to do here, we strive to be as flexible as you are. See current exhibitions on view
