About / Visual Arts
As a presenter of outstanding achievements in music, theater, dance, and the visual and performing arts, Walton Arts Center celebrates much more than a single style, art form, or point of view. Instead, we feature artists who are accomplished in varied disciplines and media and who inspire us to see the world in unexpected ways.
Walton Arts Center does not currently accept unsolicited exhibition proposals and cannot return or comment on any materials sent by mail. However, artists who wish to bring their work to the attention of Walton Arts Center’s Consulting curator may email a brief statement and weblinks to Programs@waltonartscenter.org.
