Events

You don't have to be a creator to benefit from the arts. Research shows that exposure to painting, dancing, singing, writing, and theater is good for our emotional well being. GAAC invites you to appreciate and benefit from the creativity of others all year long through our diverse events.

Companion programs – artist interviews, art history talks, classes, theater performances, music, poetry — round out each exhibit and offer dynamic opportunities to dig deeper into a theme and to explore it from many unexpected angles.
