We enjoyed the recitations and lies Bill Lepp told. Everyone was laughing and enjoying it thoroughly. What excellent programs are offered at the Alliance. The parking is very easy which makes the visit even better. The gift shop has some interesting items for sale. We look forward to more offerings and exhibits.

David teaches the fundamentals of painting, getting started to sell, while combining painting faster with intention. He provides a clear first experience into acrylic abstract painting.

Saw the David & Amy Sedaris play "The Book of Liz" here, under the Theater Conspiracy label/troupe/brand, and upon walking in, I had my expectations somewhat low: it was a small, shall we say "humble" space and I didn't know what they'd be able to pull off. But the show was great, funny, subversive, all the good things live theater... More

The Alliance offers so much to choose from -- classes for children and adults, theater, painting, fiber arts, poetry and music -- it's hard to capture everything in one review! I highly recommend attending one of their free gallery openings, plays, or poetry events! My favorite events are the special events that they have each fall! If you like the... More

Alliance for the Arts puts on all kinds of programs -- the Indian festival, Pride festival, a Saturday farmer's market with lots of local farmers and vendors. They also do plays, art camps for kids, and have a great gallery and a small but really cool gift shop. Worth a visit, there's almost always something going on!
