The ArtExchange supports working artists and arts education through the development of a world-class visual arts center reflecting the rich cultural heritage of our community.


Core Values

-  An art center enhances the quality of life in our community, creates synergy for economic development and is a destination for residents and visitors.

-  Students of all ages benefit from equal access to arts education.

-  Experiencing working artists as they are creating gives insight into the artistic process and fosters greater appreciation for the arts.

-  Artists benefit from being able to work in a professionally supportive environment.

-  Art forges alliances, bridges gaps and cultivates communication across a diverse cultural and socio-economic spectrum.
