Garden City Arts was founded in 1989 under the name of Southwest Arts & Humanities Council with the intent to bring more arts and humanities events to Southwest Kansas. The organization was housed in borrowed spaces for many years until moving to our current downtown location in 2001.See Garden City Arts and all Garden City has to offer by arranging your trip with our Garden City online holiday planner .
During our history Garden City Arts has provided the community with numerous musical & theatrical performances, children's art activities and several public works of art throughout Garden City. Currently we host 10 to 12 art exhibits every year and showcase the talents of local artists in our gift section. We also provide monthly film viewings, public works of art, cultural programs and art classes for both children and adults for residents of Southwest Kansas.
Garden City Arts operates under the guidance of a 12 member board of directors and Executive Director Katy Guthrie.
