Fall of 2017 the 9-11 exhibit. Summer of 2018 is clothing exhibit. See the huge Tom Lea restoration from the 1930s Work Projects. Visit the garden and pick up a book for the children from the Little Free Library

A new and large venue with seating that allows good visibility to the stage. The sound system is very good also. A bar is available for refreshments.

Stopped in for an art show and was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed looking at the art of all types and there was free drinks and hors d'oeuvres for the event. Entry was free.
