We also feature an important - and FREE - after-school program for teens called Art Rocks Teens (A.R.T.).


We work to make the viewing and making of art accessible to everyone. We hope you’ll visit us and take advantage of the wide range of events and activities available. AND we hope you’ll support us with your membership so that we may continue to provide great art experiences for the community. Corey’s Kids Art Fund provides an opportunity for teens and young adults to donate to the arts.


We’re indebted to the many individuals, business members, foundations and organizations whose financial support made the renovation of our building possible and makes it possible for us to provide ongoing services.

We’re thrilled to welcome West My Friend back to the PCA stage. Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin, and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk, and pop influences.  
Give it a listen
