Together with the Museum of Art & History, MOAH:CEDAR is a catalyst for engaging a diverse audience through captivating exhibitions, innovative artists and dynamic programming. The gallery aspires to encourage progressive ideas and experimental genres of artwork, which highlight performance, education and studio practice.
The nearly 100 year-old Cedar Center for the Arts is on the National Register of Historic Places and consists of several buildings on the southwest corner of Cedar Avenue and Lancaster Boulevard including the old Sheriff Substation, the Memorial Hall, arts classrooms, MOAH:CEDAR and the 606 building.
The Center was recently restored to preserve its original character with attention paid to changes that have occurred to the building since the 1930s. True to the building’s history and form, the restoration preserved much of the original architecture, features, fixtures and style. The Cedar Center for the Arts now has multiple classroom spaces on the building’s second floor where performance, art and music classes will take place throughout the year. Cedar Center also holds numerous community events including a weekly “Open Mic Night.”
