“A Small Town Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Recently repurposed pioneer era City Hall building. Full of fascinating nooks and crannies. Beautiful, high quality art through out the building. It has artist studios, music and dance performing space. The gift shop has things you would be proud to own or give as gifts. My most recent visit was with my book club. We went to hear a lecture given by David Guterson regarding a county-wide read of Snow Falling on Cedars. The old City Council Chambers are now being used for presentations. There are a number of classes being offered. There is a cafe open during breakfast and lunch hours. When the weather is warm it flows onto the sidewalk, as well as having an outdoor deck on the back of the building. It is continually evolving. On an earlier visit we needed to use handicap access. It was a little challenging, we had to contact the gift store staff person to open the access door. She was most gracious and during an event the door may be unlocked.

“Great art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I can't speak for the programs they offer but there were some happy looking kids hanging around. There was some good art on display and a couple of pieces that blew me away. The building is full of little rooms and hidden areas open to just wandering around for a while which the friendly staff welcomed me to do even after "official" closing time. Looking forward to coffee on the back deck when the weather gets better.
