Welcome to the Arts Council – a formal name for two trendy places: The Kemp Center for the Arts and The Forum!

Welcome to the Arts Council – a formal name for two trendy places – The Kemp Center for the Arts and The Kemp at the Forum!

Whether you desire quiet contemplation while gazing at art or the hustle and bustle of a crowd at an art opening, the Arts Council is for you. The Arts Council offers you rotating art exhibits, live performances by dancers, vocalists and musicians, in addition to a year-long sculpture garden with an annual Sculpture Garden party to open the exhibit. Adult classes and workshops are offered on various subjects, and summer camps are held to engage kids in art, drama, writing and other areas of interest. Annually, budding artists as well as more seasoned ones have the opportunity to display art anonymously – without fear of public criticism – at the Mystery Art Fest.

Immerse yourself in the arts and culture of the region – become a member of the Arts Council!
