Norfolk Arts Center Reviews
My son had a school project in a local art show at this arts center. I have only been here twice, but it seemed nice. more »
This was recommended. I’m not sure I fully understood “local artists” as it was primarily school age kids art projects. Not that they were bad or even uninteresting but just not what I expected... more »
Beautiful and supportive community, great artwork and artists. The First Friday events are awesome! It's good to see a small community so involved with and supportive of the arts.
No exhibits. Very little merchandise to buy. They've been better in the past. Hope will be better again soon.
