Here at the Sedona Arts Center’s Art Barn, we keep an open door for creative people, ideas, and proposals. In fact, each and every day we meet artists who come in and share their thoughts on community development, collaboration, and new ways of engaging others in the arts. As your local creative hub, part of our mission is to nurture, cultivate, and advance great ideas. Sharing yours begins with a stop at 15 Art Barn Road, and a walk into our administrative offices at the Art Barn.
