At McGuffey Art Center, we are committed to sharing creativity in action with our community. Our community is an integral part of our continued exploration of the working visual/performing artist at all stages. We love connecting with you through our classes, open studios, and exhibitions and performances by emerging and professional artists. Many of you in our community have been asking to connect with us as friends and supporters. And now we have a way to make it official- you can now become a Friend of McGuffey! Fees from Friend supporters allow us to continue to serve our audience by sharing the process of making with all who enter, and offering free community events citywide.

When you become a Friend, you support McGuffey's mission. The McGuffey Arts Association is a community of artists dedicated to practicing their arts and to passing along the creative spirit.

And remember: you don't need to be an artist to become our Friend—
you just need to love the arts and what they do to enhance our lives.
