From a small intimate gathering of 5 to a lavish corporate event of 500, the Art Center has a space to fill your needs. The following will define our basic rental options, but we try to tailor our rental agreement to YOUR needs. The options are limitless! Just imagine what you can do, and we will endeavor to find the most reasonable way to make it a reality!
All venues (except birthday party rentals) are for a 4 hour rental period with the option of adding additional hours to your contract for a nominal fee.
Rentals also include tables and chairs set-up. Set-up begins the Thursday prior to the event for the Wharton Grande Ballroom and tear-down the following Monday. Gallery set ups begin Friday afternoon with tear-down the following Monday.
Our Wharton Grande Ballroom comes with a prep kitchen, restrooms and elevator access. Perfect for weddings, family reunions, proms and corporate events.
We have our favorites to recommend, but you have the luxury of choosing YOUR OWN caterer, music services, linens and florals.
Other available extras include a piano, PA system, all-digital sound system and beverage services for small conference meetings.
