Meetings, Tours, and Art-Focused Conversations

The Cultural Arts Center is a multi-use facility, and ideal as as meeting space, retreat venue, tour spot and discussion host. Our galleries, gathering spaces and studios – all of them accessible – are great spaces for discussion, education and performance.

Conversations & Coffee

Our Conversations & Coffee art talk series is one of our flagship programs at the Cultural Arts Center. These weekly discussions, taking place each Thursday from noon to 1 p.m., cover a wide variety of topics connected to the art world in a casual, relaxed setting. Often related to exhibitions on display in our galleries, our Conversations & Coffee discussions have been going on for more than 35 years. Bring your lunch to the CAC, and let us provide the coffee and insight. Admission is free!

Meetings & Outside Organizations

The Cultural Arts Center is a great space for retreats, training sessions, meetings and more. Arrange an off-site meeting for your team or bring your group to regular meetings in one of our spaces for a setting highly conducive to creative and productive discussion. We also host regular meetings, usually open to the public, of local arts organizations, such as the Calligraphy Guild of Columbus and the Ohio Writers’ Guild.
