Home of the Arts

Supporting the arts has always been our mission. We host exhibitions, performances, classes, art and gift markets, and many other cultural activities. Supporting the arts in the West Central Illinois region enriches us all. We aim to continue to provide opportunities for performance and visual artists to have a place to network with their peers, hone their craft, and provide a venue to inspire others. But we can’t do it alone. Please consider becoming a member and help us keep serving our region. Thanks!

WCI Arts Center enhances our region – and beyond – by providing a hub for area artists to engage with one another and share their talents with the community at large.
