The Palo Alto Art Center reopened Saturday following a $7.9-million renovation. The center was closed for 18 months to upgrade its facilities including its exhibition spaces, classrooms and children’s wing. The new center features updated outdoor grounds and a remodeled gallery shop.
To celebrate its grand reopening, the center invited community members to participate in hands-on art activities, watch live music and dance performances and meet some of the artists who will make use of the new facilities. Center officials say it serves roughly 70,000 artists, community members, students and volunteers every year.
