Through intentional programming, we are expanding access to the arts for all who seek it. The Alliance for the Arts is a creative hub that spurs and supports self-expression, imagination, and equity. It is the place to gather, meet new people, start conversations, bring attention to, and, ultimately, solve the challenges our community faces.
Experience the art in our exhibitions, shop the work of local creatives and bring a lawn chair to enjoy our outdoor events and entertainment at our Night Market held the second Wednesday of the month, expand your interests or engage with other artists at an onsite art classes for all ages and abilities, or simply come explore our ArtsPark.

Three Song Stories LIVE
Three Song Stories is an exploration of the power music has to connect us to times, places, people, and emotions from our lives. The show brings out the guests’ personalities, and personal histories, by mining the connections music has made during their lifetimes. It’s also a chance to sit back and listen to the eclectic mix of songs the guests have chosen for their ultimate musical memory short list.
The Guest of Honor is our very own Terry Tincher!

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Outdoor Movie
Back, bigger and wilder than ever, the Annual Rocky Horror Picture Show outdoor movie event returns to the Alliance for the Arts on October 14th! This nocturnal tradition has been tantalizing audiences for over 40 years. Be part of the long tradition of crowd participation as guests are encouraged to dance along to the Time Warp, yell back at the movie, and throw props in time with the action on screen and our shadow cast. The event includes a costume contest, food trucks, raffles, vendors, prop bags and a night under the stars with 700 of your favorite Transylvanians!
Please bring your own blankets and lawn chairs – coolers are not permitted.
Gates open at 6 p.m. Movie starts at dusk.
In the Gallery
Our September Gallery is a year in the making. This Juried Exhibition is in conjunction with the oral history project, Storm Stories. Instead of the usual Opening Reception, we will be holding a closing reception on September 28th, from 5-7:00 pm, to honor the one year anniversary of Hurricane Ian.
Events will be held throughout the month to commemorate, memorialize and continue to heal from last year’s storm. Information about all of the September Storm Stories events will be posted on this page soon. Stay tuned!
