Their goal was to present high quality arts that reflect the cultural diversity of the community; education in the fine and applied arts through it’s School for the Arts under teachers of a caliber seldom available outside of New York City.” This month you have the opportunity to see the inspiration of these students from their teachers as well as the amazing emerging and steady talent in RoCA and our county. The Center has educated and nurtured generations of artists, from world-class professionals to emerging talents.
