May Spring Clean
Don't forget that the Gallery will be closed the month of May for exhibits. The building will still be open, but we will be updating classrooms, cleaning and doing minor maintenance in the gallery for our 2019 exhibition season. Want to help? See the volunteer section on our Support page.

An Ankeny Evening With the Arts
Mark your calendars for Friday, May 10, 2019 at 6:30pm. An Ankeny Evening With the Arts is an annual collaboration between the Ankeny Art Center, Ankeny Community Chorus, Ankeny Community Theater and Prairie Ridge Church. Don't miss the performance by the Ankeny Chorus at 7:30pm. This year's exhibit hosted by the Ankeny Art Center will be of a local artist, Matt Parkinson. 

Winter Weather
Winter has arrived, and with it, the potential for major snowstorms, cold weather and ice. It is our policy to close when the Ankeny Schools close or delay for bad weather. To say informed on winter weather closing follow us on Facebook or become a member to stay up to date on all of the Ankeny Art Center happenings.
