Cultural Arts Center

CAC for Event Finder
The Cultural Arts Center is THE most unique public arts facility in central Ohio because we encourage the public to explore and experience Visual Arts in every way from the hands-on to the lecture to the Art Gallery Exhibit and more.

Our numerous teaching Studios mean that no matter what your skill or interest level, if you are at least 18, you can explore your artistic potential here in college-level, non-accredited classes and workshops. Make jewelry and learn metal working, learn to throw a pot in ceramics, explore multiple types of sculpture, weave a scarf, paint, make prints, enamel on copper, and even try your skill at bronze casting. Take part in Faculty-Student Exhibits and sell your art in our Faculty/Student Gift Shop.

Art Exhibits & Galleries
Love Art and Art Galleries? Visit the new-every-month Exhibits in our huge Main Hall Gallery and intimate Loft Gallery. It’s free and open every day but Sunday.

Conversations & Coffee
Take in this free weekly program that brings together artists and those who love art in a relaxed, casual setting. Artists bring examples of their work and/or slides to share with the audience. You bring a sack lunch, we'll provide the coffee. This program meets Thursdays from noon to 1pm in the 3rd floor Loft Meeting Room.
Event Facilities
Rent our lovely courtyard and Main Hall Gallery for weddings, retreats and special events.

Be part of the Art at the Cultural Arts Center.
