I have been to the gallery, listened to music and took part in arts programs (painting instruction) here. All of which is enjoyable. I like the venue, the statues around the outside and spent time reflecting with the dominantly Yukon art. A great place to support.

We took in a great concert here. It is a great venue for live performance. It sees itself as more than that though, showcasing local art in its gallery that seems to change frequently. And it's a nice perk that it is free to view.

I was on the hunt for a picture by Arthur Joe, that was listed as part of the permanent collection. I met one of the staff, Rebecca who was new to the Gallery, since January and understand that the permanent collection is not always on display. There was an interesting display by three different artists. I enjoy new art collections... More

The program offers a great selection for all ages and tastes. The volunteers are exceptional, the exhibition either at the community "corridor", the Grotto Gallery or the Main Gallery are always a treat! I love the way it is made accessible for the families as we can raised budding art lovers !

Very impressive line up of worldly entertainment can be seen right here in Whitehorse. Excellent seating and sound system as long as bone heads turn OFF their cell phone. Web site is the only thing that sucks about the Art Centre. Hard to navigate and harder to rely on for booking tickets.

Worthwhile catching a performance at YAC and the galleries are always full of pieces from talented artists.

When I moved here 10 years ago, I was amazed to find there was such a great performing arts facility here. This is a very intimate type of theater-not too big so every seat is a good seat. Great effort is put into bringing in a variety of artist and local performers. Locals look forward to such events as the... More

Went to a concert last night at the Arts Centre. What an excellent venue for music. Small enough, tiered enough and very nicely organized. I would certainly recommend going if there's something happening there that you would like to see!
