Create an itinerary including Cedarhurst Center for the Arts
In the past 40 years, Cedarhurst has grown into a cultural mecca spread over 90 acres. The original two-room museum has expanded into a 33,000-square-foot cultural center with four galleries (one of which exhibits works from the Mitchell collection), an interactive family learning center, and acoustically sound performance hall. The campus is also home to the Shrode Art Center, which includes a gallery, classrooms, and studio space; the historic Mitchell Home and Schweinfurth House, used for special events and meetings; and the Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park, which boasts one of the finest outdoor contemporary sculpture collections in the U.S. The Mitchells' legacy is one to be celebrated and enjoyed by all who visit southern Illinois.

  • This is a beautiful place. It sits on 70 + acres, has outdoor sculptures, beautiful indoor galleries, there is an area for children. They offer classes, lectures, and live music events during the summer outdoors in their back lawn area. Definitely worth a visit!!!
  • cedarhurst is a gem for southern IL. They manage to get top notch talent that always shines. The venue is in an art gallery that has different displays almost every time we go, If you want to support classical music and live performances , there isn't a better place to go unless you count St. Louis as part of southern IL.
