The Gallery @ Westside Cultural Arts Center – Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11:00am – 4:00pm.
The Gallery at Westside Cultural Arts Center is an Atlanta art gallery featuring a rotating collection of local, national and international artists, cultural and community programming, and an artist in residence program.
“Art should push the limits, raise questions and, most importantly, get people talking,” said Dr. Chappuis. “I’m attracted to artists who tell a story with their work and thus we provide space so they can create narratives beyond the traditional gallery model.”
WCAC works to attract artists who think and create outside of the box. From the Cracking Art oversized pink dogs in sneakers that flank the entrance to the mural plastered along a city-block-long stretch of the building by noted muralist, HENSE, WCAC showcases artists in their Atlanta art gallery from emerging to established in an array of mediums.
