We are an inclusive platform for the expression of the rich and complex cultural diversity that defines our communities through exhibitions, performances, workshops, and creative inquiry.

Vision Statement:

A vibrant and thriving gathering place centered on art and culture where the ever-evolving voices of our local communities inspire dialogue and action toward establishing healthy and generative communities, local and beyond.


While we maintain high standards for aesthetic expression, we believe that the creative and cultural expression of all people of our state is of equal value. We are culturally and socially inclusive, providing venue to our host culture and the vast array of voices which comprise our unique community; to inspire wonder, curiosity, new ways of thinking, and civic action as a pathway toward building and sustaining healthy, thriving communities.
