AAC’s year in review 2014

As we approach the new year, and wrap up our 40th anniversary, we wanted to take this time to reflect on everything we’ve done together this year, and celebrate the next season of exhibitions, classes, and events!

So how did you do? If you’ve been following us for any length of time you know AAC has a robust schedule of programming. Each year we present four seasons of exhibitions, offer four sessions of classes for all ages, and provide subsidized studio space to more than 10 resident artists. To put that into context we’ve created a few videos this year to help illustrate AAC’s rich history, and the work we’ve done this year.

Now if you’re thinking all of this looks pretty good, you might have a couple of questions for yourself…

How can I get involved with and support Arlington Arts Center?

And what’s coming up at AAC in 2015?

Exhibitions:

Join us for the opening reception of our winter exhibitions on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015, 6 – 9 pm

Classes:

We have opened registration for two more seasons of classes: The 2015 winter and spring schedule is now open, and classes begin as soon as February 4.
