I have been there a good number of times for first rate exhibitions, to participate in their wonderful classes , to purchase one of a kind gifts in their shop, and to attend excellent arts movies in their theater. This center would be the envy of much larger metropolitan areas. Not to be missed

What a gift to be surrounded by such talent. Good classes, a great addition to our city. They need more open-houses

The Galleries, gift shop and coffee stop are great resting areas but nothing beats the Silent Film Festival for new experiences.

Home cooking, Hispanic style. Roasted meat dinners packed with freshness and great taste. Friendly service. Hidden away at the back corner of the GoggleWorks Art Center. Not open during off hours. Which it was open longer.
