Story

Our story begins with community, and connection with art. The arts have the power to ignite the imagination and transform how we see the world.  It calls us together for shared creative experiences.

As the Gorge grows and changes our community’s need for an arts center only gets stronger. When we open again at full capacity Columbia Center for the Arts has big plans as an innovative arts hub with mind blowing lectures and new voices, diverse theatre performances, more music and dance, new artistic collaborations, creative online classes...anything is possible - that is the beauty of a community art space

But we can’t do it without your help, now more than ever. The unexpected challenges we all face have put CCAs existence at risk.

What would you lose without a community arts center? 

- A professional theatre to showcase local performers and bring big-city acts to downtown Hood River
- A light-filled gallery space for artists to show their work, often for the very first time
- Arts classes that encourage young and… older to grow as an artist or become one
- Opportunity to be a part of something bigger than yourself
- A gathering place to celebrate where we live

Last year CCA held over 30 visual art exhibits, produced over 100 live events and performances, and over 80 arts education experiences, 1/2 of which were free.

We can’t imagine our community without CCA, and hope you feel the same way. 

It’s a fact that community art spaces improve social connection and engagement, remove age and socioeconomic barriers and help sustain the local economy. Let’s not lose that.

YOU have the power to keep this arts center in our community. Your support will help us weather this crisis and make our plans a reality. 

Help us stay strong so we can hold you up with the power of the arts!
