Great art events.

This is a beautiful building and they do well at holding specific art displays. Keep an eye on their website for what's coming up. I am local and go 3-4 times a year.

Museum features local artists specializing in Native American art. Art lessons are popular with school children. There is a nice gift shop too.

Really enjoyed all the art you had there. Wonderful to see a lot of new artist. Also got to see your local school art show, which was fantastic. Good to see your community really supports art in the schools. Keep up the great work!
