The City is also proud to provide local artists two unique opportunities to showcase their work. City Hall Gallery
The City Hall Gallery highlights various art exhibits on the walls of the hallway leading to and from the Council Chambers. Main Library Gallery
The Main Library provides local artists with Art Gallery Space located on the 1st and 3rd floors of the building.
