The Art Cafe attracts local, national and international artists. Monthly shows
of cutting edge work take place at our downtown art center. Our year-round
Word Theatre program serves hundreds of students with classes for children,
teens, and adults taught by professional artists in many types of media. No
one is turned away for lack of means.

General operating needs such as office and art equipment and supplies,
are necessary for the continued success of our organization. Staff training
and development is essential to a forward strengthening our art center.

online and at the Art Cafe gallery room. This body of work constitutes
