Community Events

Free Events & Performances

From community open houses, Music and Wine at Sundown on our patio, free performances on our Cooke-Haley Stage, exhibitions in our gallery, and free performances by the students in our summer camps, we always have something going on that won’t cost you a cent to attend. We take our mission seriously and want to make sure the arts are accessible to everyone in our community regardless of your current financial situation. Check our homepage for upcoming community events. Through the generosity of LaVahn and Mary Frances Hoh, we are also able to provide scholarships to any families who could not otherwise afford to send their children to programs at our center.

The Mobile Arts Outreach Program works together with Louisa County Public Schools to bring free art programming and free meals to under-served youth in our community throughout the summer! We will also use the Arts Bus for other community outreach events and classes around the Louisa area throughout the year.
