The Evolution of Art Center East

In a recent My Voice column), columnist Mary McCracken made note of several art and cultural organizations in La Grande that function without support from the City or County, and that it’s a shame to let these resources flounder when they have the potential to increase the value of our community on multiple levels. We couldn’t agree more and would like to add another organization to her list: Art Center East!

Who is an Artist?

When you hear the word art, you might think of a painting hung in a gold frame, a sculpture on a pedestal, the echoing halls of a museum. We tend to lump art with high culture – galleries, museums, ornate theaters and towering concert halls. While these places help us to celebrate and preserve art, they’re not the whole story.
