Expressions of Community Slide Show

Once we opened our doors January 26 & 27, 1963, we quickly became the primary place for artists to connect with each other and the public. These images illustrate the variety of community arts we have shared together and enjoyed over 6 decades.

We look forward to the next 60 years!

Thank YOU Corvallis!
