O’Hanlon Center for the Arts provides an environment and spaces
where creativity and community can develop, expand and flourish


From OHCA Board President Jackie La Lanne

We are emerging out of the Pandemic and happily hosting in person workshops, events, gallery exhibits with Round Table discussions, and a new member welcome gathering.  Please note, we are still asking that everyone be fully vaccinated to participate and to continue to wear masks indoors.

But what about the “SAVE THE LOFT” campaign? Sinkhole update: We are making slow but steady progress in getting approval from the City for the plans to divert the culvert. Work to start most likely in Spring. Fortunately the repair done in March stood up well during the recent heavy storm. We have collected close to $60K toward the project. More is needed but we are very encouraged by the outpouring of support from members and our community.

Last week I stepped outside the Loft to admire our newly stained deck and smiled at two people standing there looking around. One said “I wanted to bring her here because she’s never seen this place.” Her friend chimed in “It’s so magical!” Every time I come here I feel so very thankful to care and love this place with you all.
