The Art Center

Join Us Today!


Out of an abundance of caution and care for our community and under the new suggested guidelines from both the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Adams County Health Department, The Art Center will be closing our building to the public for the next three weeks. During this time, our staff will continue to work from home in order to continue fulfilling our mission to provide opportunities for growth and appreciation of the visual fine arts through exhibits and education in our community. We understand that now more than ever, creating art can be a powerful tool to provide respite from the outside world. We have a number of resources for fun projects that can be done from home on our website ( and on our YouTube Channel ( 

Updates for Education: All virtual art classes will continue as scheduled at this time. All in-person After School Art Clubs will be canceled for the remainder of the semester. If parents have any questions about educational programs, please email Director of Education, Elizabeth Swick at 

Updates for Exhibits: The 2020 Mary S. Oakley and Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase Award Winners and photos of their artwork will be announced on our website on Friday, November 20th. We will continue to work to get the entire gallery online soon after the award-winners have been announced. We hope to re-open our gallery space to the public as soon as it is safe to do so. We will announce that date as soon as we can. 

We appreciate your patience at this time as we continue to navigate this difficult storm. If you have any questions about the Art Center, please email our Administrative Assistant, Amanda Brown-DeClue at
