50 years of CRESTON ARTS

Creston Arts, a 501(c)3 non-profit, has been serving Creston and surrounding communities since 1976. In 2011, a new group of volunteers took the reigns and established Union County's first art gallery and developed programs for individuals of all ages and abilities.  

Read more about where we started, what we've accomplished, and what's to come.
