We have big plans to establish an arts center in Geneva by acquiring/renting a space in downtown Geneva. As stated in our Business Plan, we intend to start out with enough space to host small events, workshops, classes, and demonstrations. It will be called the Geneva Center for the Arts.

The Greater Geneva Art Guild is now under the wing of the Geneva Foundation for the Arts. When things get back to normal and we can safely gather, we’ll be ready. We plan to continue our tradition of bringing local artists together to learn, to encourage, to exhibit, and to socialize. Beginning this year, we’ll be offering memberships with a modest fee, which will help offset the expense of administration and overhead. Event fees will be additional.
Here are some of the activities and events we’re planning…
