66th Annual June Art Exhibit – Going on Now!

The Wassenberg Art Center has hosted this time-honored Annual June Art Exhibit since 1955. Guess where that first show took place? Right here in the (former) Van Wert Armory, our still new-to-us, home. We hope you visit this exhibit and support our artists through purchases and by being here. On view through July 4.
