GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is a place to develop skills, ask questions, experiment freely, and investigate the human spirit. Here we create a dialogue between the established and experimental, the contemporary and the traditional. Through exceptional arts education and engaging community programming, we inspire people to expand the boundaries of art making, personal growth, and appreciation for material culture.
Open to all media and juried by Judith Schwartz, the 13th Annual Juried Exhibition aims to present a selection of exemplary contemporary work from artists around the country.
