The Dougherty Arts Center offers professional development for artists through classes, workshops, meetups, and our Artist Resource Center.

The Dougherty Arts Center (DAC) has been home to local, national and international performing artists since 1978. Bring your next film festival, dance recital, live concert of staged performance to our stage, or use our free creative space rehearsal rooms for your auditions, production meetings, workshops and rehearsals.

The Julia C. Butridge Gallery is located in the heart of the arts district adjacent to the Long Center and Butler Park at the Dougherty Arts Center, a multi-cultural community arts center providing opportunities for creative expression to citizens for over 41 years. Visitors enjoy an exceptional 2,000 square feet of exhibit space in the main gallery, and an additional 480 square feet in newly renovated gallery space.
