Art and Community since 1975

Pardon our dust! While our 100 year old buildling is undergoing exterior restoration, we are open regular hours and thrilled to see you!

McGuffey Art Center is a cooperative association which supports the growth of emerging and professional visual and performance artists, located one block off the Downtown Mall.

We are dedicated to providing opportunities for the community to participate in the creative process through access to open studios, exhibitions and performances, classes, tours, and outreach projects.  

As an artists' cooperative venue, McGuffey relies on individuals and artists willing to contribute time and energy.  We encourage you to enter studios, meet our artists, watch them work, and get inspired.

Come to our First Friday openings, free and open to the public on the first Friday of every month (except for August) as we celebrate and meet with the community.  Better yet, start making art and jury in to be a member.  Jurying is offered three times a year.
