We make this a regular stop for first Friday. There is always something interesting on display plus free refreshments and music! This is truly an "art center" for the community, offering a variety of activities and a full slate of shows each year.

The Schweinfurth is a small museum that has very unique exhibits. They seem to have made textiles a focus and the current exhibit was of textiles. Each year they have quilt shows and a wonderful school exhibit. Worth a stop.
