Your Contribution to the Arts Makes it Happen!
Thanks to you,
The Waterloo Center for the Arts is truly a remarkable community resource. In addition to the Center’s free galleries and significant permanent art collection, including the world’s largest public collection of Haitian artwork, we offer quality arts programs for all ages. WCA is a community space where everyone is invited to experience the arts through classes, changing exhibitions, outstanding facility rentals, concerts, events, school trips, scholarships and volunteer opportunities. At some point almost every child in the Cedar Valley visits the Phelps Youth Pavilion, which proudly provides unique interactive hands-on cultural experiences for young
people and families.
Outside the walls of the Center, we provide educational outreach programs, are committed to building strong community partnerships, and offer free outdoor concerts, festivals and events at the RiverLoop Amphitheatre,
Mark’s Park and Expo Plaza.
