WaterWorks Art Museum (formerly known as Custer County Art Center) or CCAHC is housed in the old water treatment facility. The building itself is art and history. We are a contemporary and historical Art Museum. We change exhibits about every six weeks. Our permanent collection includes historical photographs of Evelyn Cameron and LA Huffman. We offer adult and children's classes year round and hold open studio on Tuesday evenings when anyone can use the workshop for your different mediums. We have a delightful gift shop that features local and state artists with various mediums.
