Waterworks Visual Arts Center

Providing diverse opportunities in the arts for all people through exhibitions, education, & outreach programs.

During these unprecedented times, your 
financial support of our local arts and cultural organizations has never been more important.

Please help us ensure that we endure this crisis and reemerge as a vital resource in our community's recovery.

I support ART for ALL


Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and the amended Phase 2 reopening plan outlined by Governor Cooper, the Waterworks’ facility remains CLOSED until further notice. 

We have made the very difficult decision to cancel all in-person Waterworks’ Summer ARTventures for 2020.

As we continue to monitor and follow guidelines set forth by the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC, we feel we must act responsibly to ensure the safety of our visitors, students, instructors, volunteers & staff.

We are grateful for your continuing support during these unsettling times.  We look forward to when we can all gather again.

If you need immediate assistance, please contact us via email at admin@waterworks.orgBe safe and stay well!


Waterworks is proud to share these virtual opportunities to engage and inspire your imagination and creativity.
