Arts Center

The NOTO Arts Center is the hub for visitors of all ages to learn about the community, NOTO, and, of course, ART! It serves as the administrative center for the NOTO organization, a visitors center, a venue for meetings and celebrations, and a place to explore the arts through exhibits and classes.

About the NOTO Arts Center

The building itself is itself a work of art. Built in 1938 as a federal post office, it is a Classical Revival architectural style building with detailing in the window arches and a glass fanlight window over entry. The interior features historic elegance, a bit of artistic funk, and industrial grit. Permanent works that adorn the Arts Center include NOTO Community Quilt, a fiber artwork created by Kathy Pflum through contributions from the community to celebrate 10 years of the NOTO Arts and Entertainment District. The other permanent work is the donor tree located in the Redbud Community Room. The tree is itself a work of art with contributions by local artists and businesses: Gary Whitlock provided the hand carved wood, Fire Me Up Ceramics the ceramic stones, Kathy Pflaum and Staci Dawn Ogle the Redbud clusters, Ernest-Spencer the metal leaves, and Mainline Printing the colored film and printing.


Art classes are offered by the NOTO organization and Avant Garde Underground artist members. Visit the What’s Happening calendar to see what is being offered.  Classes offered at the Arts Center are marked by a yellow dot.
