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

Welcome Spring! 

April 16, 2022 from Board President and Executive Director

AND with the change of season, a lot of positive change is happening at the Center. Dick O’Hanlon’s Mobian II sculpture was repainted and is a beacon welcoming all come and explore. Plus a beautiful safety railing was installed from the deck to the gallery!


We have finally set the date and raised the money to SAVE the LOFT! Construction for the new culvert and driveway commences May 2 and will last about 4 weeks. This necessary work will limit access for the duration of construction. There will not be a Gallery show in May and many of the workshops that occur during the week will be moved off campus or postponed. Please visit the calendar for details.

THANK YOU for your patience and for donating the needed funds that are saving our beloved workshop building!
