Main Line Art Center in Haverford is a welcoming and inclusive creative home where everyone is encouraged to create, experience, and discover the value of art. Committed to making art more accessible to everyone, for over 75 years the Art Center has offered art programs for all ages, abilities and skill levels, including a unique series of Accessible Art Programs for children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities at-risk youth, and low-income families. Throughout the year, Main Line Art Center presents innovative, contemporary art exhibitions in their award-winning gallery, as well as exhibitions that celebrate community. 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Art Center’s Accessible Art Programs and the 10th anniversary of the Center’s widely acclaimed contemporary exhibition series, Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition, as well as the first year back in the renovated building. With a goal of providing Art for Everyone, the Art Center is an inclusive and vibrant community and a cultural gem on the Main Line.
Like High Swartz, the Art Center has an active role in the Montgomery Bar Association’s Courting Art program as a community art center partner. May is also a special month for the Art Center. On Friday, May 9, the Art Center will hold a Preview Party for Jewels & Treasures, a fine art exhibition and sale running May 9 through June 6, which benefits the Center’s Accessible Art Programs and educational offerings. Tickets are on sale now. On Saturday, May 31 from 1 to 3 pm, the Center will unveil their new Sensory Garden for artists and community members of all abilities, and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Accessible Art Programs with a Sensory Garden Party.
