Connections at the Center

Creativity at the Center

YOU at the Center

 

What happens at the center of something? Paths cross. A point of connection occurs. The center is always the very heart of an entity—the beating pulse that enlivens everything around it.

What happens at our Center—the Riverside Arts Center—is a range of creative experiences that nurture and support the Ypsilanti community and surrounding areas. Every day, we open our doors to a vibrant space where everyone is welcome to share, express, explore, and connect.

Stop by and enjoy our monthly exhibitions, catch a performance or play, discover free family-friendly events, or join us for hands-on workshops.

At Riverside Arts Center, we commit to do all we can to create constructive art spaces where justice and peace can flourish.  

The protests around the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery and the countless numbers of Black lives lost as a result of systemic, institutionalized racism; the suffering due to COVID disproportionately affecting our community in Ypsilanti, all shake us and affect us personally and collectively.  

We will continue to offer our space to the community, once we can safely open our doors. Until then, we will work to position ourselves to emerge and re-engage from a position of strength and compassion.

We can be reached at info@riversidearts.org

We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
