Coleman Center for the Arts

York, AU

The Coleman Center for the Arts is a contemporary arts organization that uses art to foster positive social change, answer civic needs, and build local pride.

The Coleman Center was founded in 1985 through the grass roots efforts of local citizens. Programs have evolved to answer the needs of the community –  including: a community based artists’ residency; an exhibition program that features the work of local, regional, and national artists; an education program ; a free, public community garden that promotes small scale food productions; and Pop Start, a permanent community pop up and storefront space for artists-public experimentation.
