his decades-long commitment to the cultural arts. Lovingly known as 'The Frank,' this contemporary art gallery
showcases multidisciplinary inclusive exhibitions that foster connections, facilitate collaborations and initiate cultural change. The gallery's exhibition and
learning space serves as a site of convergence for artists, performers, thought
leaders and community members.
Located on the first floor, The Frank's spacious galleries reflect the works of regional, national and international artists in a robust exhibition program that changes throughout the year. The Frank features two additional exhibition spaces in the form of the lobby gallery entitled 'The Frank Aisles' and the Third Space Gallery on the second floor. The Third Space connects to a sun-filled classroom designed to host workshops and lectures in support of social engagement and artistic innovation.
