Upcoming Music Performances at the FAC

Did you know the Fine Arts Center Theatre was originally built with music performances in mind? We've now adapted the theatre space to include the theatrical musicals, traditional plays, and music performances. Speaking of music... we have two great bands performing at upcoming museum events.

Glenna Goodacre, Watersprite III, bronze, 1990. One of the pieces currently
 on display in the Tactile Gallery. This figure's hand has been touched so much
that when you view it, the bronze is weathered in the figure's palm.
