A Place for Everyone   A Place to Explore

Since first opening our doors in 1968, 171 Cedar Arts Center has provided the community with a warm, friendly home in which to explore the arts. Over the years, with the help of our supporters and our outstanding faculty, we have grown into an award-winning organization that provides top-quality programming and instruction. Even with our growth we are proud that we have preserved a distinct, hometown feeling that makes access to the arts comfortable for everyone.

Every year, thousands of people, from toddlers to seniors, explore the arts through classes, lessons, performances, recitals, exhibitions, and much, much more. We invite you to join us. Come to classes in almost every artistic discipline. Wander through one of the ever-changing exhibitions in the Houghton Gallery, or sit down to a performance in the Studio Theater, where artists reach you on a more personal level. Classical to contemporary. Observe or participate. With so many choices on one campus, you can choose what really inspires you.
