Annual Meeting & New Brand Reveal Update!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Annual Meeting & Brand Reveal! Rokusek Design has done a great job developing a logo that is reflective of where the Art Center is as an organization right now. Our Board, staff, and volunteers are so excited to move forward with our new look!

The new brand will make publications, website, and the facility easier for you to navigate so that you can find the information you need. Thank you for your patience as Art Center staff implements the new brand into our website and social media platforms.

Thank you for your support!
