The Dove Gallery

The Dove Gallery is being created with two objectives in mind: it will serve both as a downtown community art gallery and include a fitting tribute to Arthur Dove and his work. The community art gallery is intended to engage and educate the public about art, provide avenues for showing art unique to our community, demonstrating the spirit of the local community, build relationships between artists, architects and the public, and create possibilities for collaboration and exhibition between artists and new audiences. The memorial to Arthur Dove, using the best  modern technology, will showcase his life, work, and ongoing significance as a major American artist. In each case, the Gallery will act as a dynamic venue sponsoring public lectures, regularly changing its displays as it emphasizes the important role public art performs in creating a vibrant civic life.
