Three galleries comprise the McGuffey Art Center, the largest display space in the city. It’s there, in the 1916 school building, that visual artists, sculptors, photographers, and more converge for a veritable zoo of artistic talent. And at Second Street Gallery, the 40-year-old contemporary art space stays relevant with thoughtful exhibitions and lots of extracurricular events, like its über-popular “Brews with a View” on the rooftop of the City Center for Contemporary Arts, complete with kegs from local breweries and often a live band.
