The Quincy Art Center wants to hear from the community!

The Quincy Art Center is partnering with Rokusek to examine the organization’s brand and make any necessary changes. As the first step in this process, Rokusek is gathering feedback from the community regarding the Art Center.

Two community forums will be held to discuss the Quincy Art Center. Topics will range from the facility itself to staffing and programming. Those interested in participating have the option to come to attend either of the two forums. The forums will be held at:

Thursday, August 25 | 6pm at the Unitarian Church
1479 Hampshire Street | Quincy, IL 6230

Monday, August 29 | 6pm at the Quincy Public Library
526 Jersey Street | Quincy, IL 62301

Everyone is encouraged to attend and no previous experience with Quincy Art Center is required. If you are unable to attend the sessions, please complete the online survey!
