The ArtWorks Center, opened in August 2014, is a space for our creative community to learn, create, display, and perform in all artistic avenues. The space includes the county's only public clay studio as well as two galleries, an artists' lounge, and a retail space supporting local artwork.
One of only four remaining atmospheric theaters in the state of Minnesota, the Historic Paramount Theatre plays host to a variety of arts and entertainment— from comedy to symphony— each year, and provides a space for local performing arts groups to celebrate established as well as emerging talent.

The ArtWorks Festival celebrates visual, performing, and literary artists, many with local ties. The free, two-day Festival features regionally and nationally known artists exhibiting their work, presenting performances in music and story telling and engaging in audience Q & A sessions. Family arts activities and demonstrations including glass blowing are also part of the fun.
