a place for the arts

Bisbee, Arizona

a message to the community

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all living your best with inspiration and hope. Back in early March we were poised to share a very exciting announcement - our first annual ticketed May Day Fundraiser. A big ole Bisbee party with art installations, food, drink, a psychedelic  lounge and members open studios! It was to culminate with a killer concert in the parking lot- we had the band AJJ lined up and they were so on board. We will reschedule!

Artists: We also were going to announce an open call  "Habitat" to all of you! We are so sad that the opportunity to bring your work into our gallery has to be postponed! Don't stop - the world needs you!


Supporters: If you are in the position to make a donation to Central School at this time,  it would be humbly and deeply appreciated. We have lost a vital income stream with our doors closed.

Make a donation here.

Thank you Everyone!


The Board of Directors and Laurie McKenna, Executive Director of Central School Project
