Arts Orientation Center in Lancaster

A steady stream of visitors and art lovers stopped in at the Arts Orientation Center, the new bricks-and-mortar home of the PA Arts Experience, during Art Walk this past weekend in downtown Lancaster, PA.
It's a wonderful setting for member's art, with galleries on the first and second floor of this beautifully restored building on Gallery Row.

The brick walls discovered during the renovation provide a great backdrop for the art.

Here's the view of the Center from the 3rd floor of the Prince St. Parking garage across the street, with the lights shining in the window. Come and visit, it's your gateway to discovering the thriving local arts community, including: exhibits of work by regional member trail artists; a Concierge service to design your own itinerary; information about member artists, galleries, museums, and other cultural venues; and arts related tours, packages & educational programs. Regular business hours will commence in November.
To add to the buzz, the PA Arts Experience was featured in an article in Sunday's Washington Post--read it here.

That is beautiful brick and mortar! I wish I were in PA to check it out.

Sue, that's fantastic. Looks like beautiful space. I had no idea there was anything like that in Lancaster! We usually only hit the outlets and the Amish fabric shops when we travel there. Seems like we've been missing out.

Lancaster city has a LOT to offer, and is developing a reputation as an arts destination; the arts scene is growing and thriving. I'm happy to be a part of it. For more, check out Lancaster Arts: http://www.lancasterarts.com
