The Arts Council Gallery

The Arts Council Gallery located in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center is one of two galleries managed by The Arts Council.

Exhibits in The Arts Council Gallery at the CAC and the Junior League Gallery located in the Bama Theatre, are displayed on a rotating basis and are usually booked several months in advance.

Exhibit openings at both The Arts Council and The University of Alabama Galleries in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center take place on First Fridays from 5-8 pm and are free and open to the public.
