See differently. See unexpectedly. See art in a new way.

Welcome to the Center for Creative Connections (C3), a gallery with works of art from the Museum's collection and a space for visitors of all abilities and ages. Whether you are 2 or 102, our job is to inspire you, engage your interests, and pique your curiosity. This unique 12,000-square-foot learning environment invites you to

  • examine works of art related to a common theme.
  • respond to works of art in new ways.
  • interact with local artists and our community.
