Celebrating 15 years opening doors to creativity.


Bower Center for the Arts

Our Mission

To make visual and performing arts available to the region; to become a creative force and an educational resource for the community; and to harness the economic vitality of the arts.


Our programs foster creative expression, reflect and expand community interest, and encourage citizens to gather, connect, learn new skills, and gain confidence through the process of making and enjoying art.  We offer classes for all ages, exhibits for you to enter & view, live performances for your enjoyment and special community events.  Shop for that piece of art to brighten your space, visit our studio artists, and host your next personal or professional event in one of our beautiful spaces.  It's all here for you!
