Now consisting of the Willard Arts Center, the historic Colonial Theater, the ARTitorium, and the Civic Center, these settings provide the means to annually raise $2.7 million toward the local community in the form of art galleries, 10 - 16 mainstage shows, 8 visual arts exhibitions, and community events all year long. The continued support of its volunteers and over 60 staff members accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

Nathalie Daoust - Korean Dreams
Opening reception January 16 · 5:30 - 7:30pm
Korean Dreams is a complex series that probes the unsettling vacuity of North Korea. Taken in secrecy, photographer Nathalie Daoust's images reveal a country that seems to exist outside of time, as a carefully choreographed mirage.
Daoust deliberately obscures her photographs during the development stage, as they layers of film are peeled off, the images are stifled until the facts become 'lost' in the process and a sense of detachment from reality is revealed. This darkroom method mimics the way information is transferred in North Korea -- manipulated until the underlaying truth is all but a blur. The resultant pictures speak to North Korean society, of missing information and truth concealed.
