City Hall Lobby Exhibit (Rotating) 

The Cultural Arts Division showcases the works of outstanding local and regional professional artists through rotating art exhibits at City Hall. The goal of these exhibits is to present art that makes your City Hall a warm and welcoming place. Our lobby gallery features 2D and 3D artworks on approximately 4-12 week rotation depending on availability. Exhibits may feature a solo artist, artist organizations, or a particular theme. Learn how to exhibit your artwork at City Hall.
