Art is for Everyone!
Founded in 1972 by artists Pat Koelker and Nancy Wilds, Rose Hill Arts Center became a place for aspiring artists to create, to teach and learn. It was originally located at the Rose Hill Estate on Barnwell Avenue and soon became a haven for a variety of artistic disciplines. In 1993, the Center's current home at 122 Laurens Street became available, and Rose Hill evolved into Aiken Center for the Arts. The name was chosen due to the Center's central location in the downtown area.
Today, the Aiken Center for the Arts offers a multitude of outreach and awareness programs including opportunities for children and adults; juried shows and competitions, lectures and instruction, and a variety of concert events; music, dance, film, and other performing arts; as well as a Gallery Store where local artisans offer their original works for sale. Year-round exhibits feature artists from around the world, with an emphasis on local and regional talent of the South.
The mission of Aiken Center for the Arts is to inspire and educate by providing unique visual and performing arts experiences for all ages.
