At Home With ASCA

Extended through September 25th! The Alabama State Council on the Arts is showing works from the private collections of Council on the Arts staff members and local partner organizations. The works selected span a myriad of media and styles, and the exhibition is a playful, light invitation for the community to get to know the Council on the Arts staff better through their art collection. The exhibition features the works of some of Alabama’s biggest names in visual arts, and staff provide first-hand accounts of their experiences with the artists and the pieces they purchased.
