Arts in the Neighborhood


Arts in the Neighborhood (AIN)

We develop ways to share cultural life by bringing arts to our neighborhoods and inviting the neighborhoods to be part of our downtown life -- a cultural “bridge” between artists and the public. AIN has also developed interactive and educational videos. 

* Pandemic note: we have added downloadable art for kids that is free to access….get your art on!

Art2Go! Program

Our mobile Art Cart goes to neighborhoods, along with paid artists. Designed to provide and support programming in areas lacking access to such services to date. Find the Art2Go! Art Cart at First Fridays and First Saturdays -- everyone leaves with their own work of art!

Y’Art Galleries (Youth Art Program) & College Town Gallery

Elementary, High school and College students bring their classwork to share in a gallery setting, kicks off the first Friday of each month and runs for the entire month long.  Students participate and learn what it is like to “show” their art, and sometimes even sell their art! 

Art on 4th Program

Workshops that bring a variety of mediums to the public, kids to adults. Paid artists / instructors lead the classes and each participant will leave with a finished project!
