Loved a leisurely hour browsing all the art. The photography was my favorite. No admission change, but donations are accepted. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. You can check the web site for new displays of art. Also, various classes are offered.

My wife and I were very impressed with the quality of art on display at the Center for the Arts! We have been traveling across the Florida Panhandle and the Center was a highlight. We enjoyed meeting the energetic director Kim Griffin White.
