Art makes a difference to everyone. You make it happen

The Rumriver Art Center (RRAC) is an artist led community art center, where your dollars go right back into providing art to your community. The Rumriver Art Center offers in house classes and programs. We partner with many local organizations to bring art into the community at no cost or low cost.

Rumriver Art Center is a true community art center that has grown and developed by community input and support. They believe in the importance of the art making process over the product. RRAC helps to nurture, inspire, connect and motivate the artist in everyone who participates.

Close your eyes and imagine  "From the moment you enter the turn of the century brick building covered with murals created by local artists, you immediately sense the quirkiness and creative vibe of the Rumriver art center. The muraled hallway created by teens leads you into the main art gallery and via twists and turns takes you into the library café, filled with books to loan, another turn leads you into our ceramics area with a kiln room, glazing room, and wheel studio another turn and you enter our small but bright south studio overlooking the scenic Rum River. Go the opposite direction and a small staircase takes you to our community space which contains our 21Step Gallery and 3 small private studios for artists plus a quiet room. Take the stairs back down and through the hallways to our largest north studio. Here you find 4 private studios along with a huge space for classes, workshops and collaboration. This area also houses a large supply of art materials and artwork for inspiration. The breadth of supplies available is overwhelming and joyous to those who have never had these available for use. The Executive director's office is right in the eye of the center with an open door policy for all. Imagination becomes reality at the Rumriver Art Center."

The Rumriver Art Center is 90% funded by people like you taking classes and making (tax-deductible) donations. Your gift and generosity of any amount, will help to cover the costs of our general operating expenses and allow us to continue to be an arts resource for the community.
