Established in 1973, Forest City Gallery was founded by local artists on the principles of artistic autonomy and celebration of its regional context. Throughout our 39 years the Forest City Gallery, its membership and board have continued to define and reflect the evolving cultural climate of the region’s diverse communities. The gallery continues as a venue for critical thought and dialogue through a commitment to culturally relevant and ambitious exhibitions, lecture, screenings, performances, publications and events.
