The Art Center was far more than a place to learn visual arts, literary arts and music. The Art Center was a place to improve reading skills, get a meal, and gain exposure to burgeoning cultural, artistic, social, and political ideas. By the time of its closing in 1986, the Art Center had offered thousands of hours of art, photography, music and culinary instruction to city youth, adults, and senior citizens.   Curator, Michelle Black Smith
