The 2nd City Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art gallery + performance space that was incorporated on January 1, 2000.  We are dedicated to supporting and promoting artists, their work and art education.  Our mission is to expose the public to the wealth of creativity that exists. 

Our exhibitions are usually thematic and explore topics, from each artists’ unique perspective, that impact or interest the community as a whole.  The gallery provides a welcoming space where the public can come together to learn about the various cultures, traditions, lifestyles and philosophies that are part of our world.  Our arts educational outreach is offered to teenagers living in Foster Care group homes. In keeping with the gallery’s philosophy that art should be available to everyone, admission is free.
