The Willits Center for the Arts was created to support and showcase the local art scene in and around Willits, providing low-cost art and art-related services to the entire community. It holds publicly-sponsored and locally-grown art shows throughout the year. Work on renovating the historic 1926 Women’s Improvement Club building that would house the WCA began in 1993, and by 2000 the center was finally opened. Another milestone was reached in 2008 with the opening of the upstairs “Great Room,” which increased available exhibit space, and provided a venue for music, dance performances, and community events.
The Willits Center for the Arts is regularly open Thursday to Friday, 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m. An updated listing of current shows and events can be found on its website.
