For over 50 years, the Kirkland Arts Center has owned and maintained this historic structure and transformed it into an exhibition gallery, community arts studio, and education facility serving students of all ages and skill levels. Kirkland Arts Center promotes artistic mastery and community participation in the visual arts through innovative educational programming, contemporary exhibitions, and dynamic events while providing stewardship of the historic Peter Kirk Building. Kirkland Arts Center contributes to the region through an exploration of the visual arts, cultivation of artistic growth, and service to a diverse community.
