The art community we have fostered here for almost 90 years is alive and well! It is a community full of rich experiences, shared passions, creative conversations and special connections. Though we have embraced the digital world, we draw a distinction between that and our “real world” here at the League. Our community doesn’t happen on a screen, it happens when we talk to each other at an exhibit; it happens when we get messy in a class; it happens when we sit around a table together to work on projects; it happens when we meet new friends at League events. We love this sense of belonging. We may be doing more online, but we’re careful about keeping our connections strong and being here to continue nurturing this creative community. We welcome you to our studios and galleries anytime – we’d love to see you!
