ACE provides a diverse selection of arts programming with over 400 classes, 15+ gallery exhibits, and many free community events each year. ACE has an ongoing capital campaign to make its 1913 building and all these arts opportunities accessible to persons with mobility challenges.
The estimated cost of the lift and ADA-compliant renovations is $300,000. Generous community members and ACE supporters from all over have already contributed more than $20,000. ACE has received grants for the project from Oregon Cultural Trust and Union Pacific Foundation and is actively applying for additional grants.
Additionally, the City of La Grande will match up to $50,000 of the lift renovation cost. ACE’s goal is to raise $50,000 in donations from the community. You can help by donating during end of year giving. Click Here to Donate!
