Today, this dream of shared art making is a thriving reality. The Dairy’s 42,000 square foot facility houses disciplines ranging from visual arts, theater, and film to dance and music.”

Every night of the week at the Dairy offers something to stimulate your artistic nerve. Rotating gallery exhibits line the walls, the Boedecker Theater offers films and film talkback sessions you just won’t find anywhere else. Several amazing theater groups perform regularly in the Dairy’s multiple theater spaces. Music, comedy and dance are also consistent contributors to this vibrant art scene.
