For over twenty years the Beloit Art Center has been located in downtown Beloit, the cultural center of our city. We are proud to provide our region with gallery exhibits featuring professional artists, emerging artists, high school students, and community members as they pursue their artistic talents. From our monthly First Friday receptions, to classes or art camp for children, there are many ways to be inspired at the Beloit Art Center.
Built in 1912, our facility at 520 E Grand Avenue originated as the Bell Telephone Company. The two-story construction of Chicago firebrick has since housed restaurants, the Elks Club and an antique store. An excellent location in downtown Beloit, it is easily accessible to both area residents and out-of-town visitors. In 1999, the Beloit Economic Development Corporation purchased the building on behalf of the emerging Incubator. With the support of the Greater Beloit area, the Beloit Art Center continues to grow and lead by example.
The Beloit Art Center is a 501c3 organization run entirely by volunteers.
