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.
