Special Events

Our goal at Rumriver Art Center is to be an art resource for the entire community and help students of all ages explore their creativity through visual arts. Through our special events, we are able to expand our reach to more families and individuals in the community.


Come and create art at the Rumriver Art Center during our second annual Art-A-Thon! Whether you are an early bird or a night owl, we will be open for you. It will be 48 hours of non-stop art and creativity starting at 6:00pm on Friday, March 13th through 6:00pm on Sunday, March 15th.
