The US Bank Conference room, which is marked by its historic stained glass window and the Arts Council's permanent collection of art, is perfect for board meetings, business meetings, and lunch meetings.
The Hall Gallery is just outside of the HC Room and Conference Room and makes a perfect addition for slightly larger events. The Hall Gallery also features rotating fine art exhibitions.
