Take a class, go to an art show or attend an event. Great place to rent at night for a party. Terrific art, amazing restaurant on site. Directly across the street from CC Bay so there's a great view of the water.

The art center shown some interesting work by local artist. We enjoyed the gift shop. They were also having a family art day that we enjoyed. The only challenge was the restaurant was closed on the weekends and our children were starving so we had to cut the visit short.

The Art center has more than art. This is a great place to come in from the heat. There is a restaurant that looks out over the water, and art exhibits that change consistently. This is more
like a local art museum, and our art museum more like a nationwide art museum.

I love the art center. I try to four or five times per year. It's amazing to see the talent of some of our residents. I love the fact that the exhibits change on a regular basis, and virtually everything is for sale! Local art in a beautiful building on the bay front. What more could you ask for?
