“Many blessings and Mother Nature are on our side! The Community Arts Center has been fortunate to move full speed ahead with the M. Josephine Paul Family Museum. We have completed the exterior walls of the first floor, poured the second floor and foundation floor, and are partially completed with the second-floor exterior walls. It is our optimistic hope that we will be underroof in the near future. This two story, 5,500 square foot addition will extend from the current Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center, adding the M. Josephine Paul Family Museum, a black box theatre, outdoor amphitheater, and a multipurpose room. For the progress of the Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center renovations, the new carpeting has been 60% installed in the gallery, the HVAC system has been updated, and the lobby and hall have been freshly painted, with new dropped ceiling, gallery lighting, and the remainder of the gallery carpeting to be installed in April.”

More information on our expansion project is coming soon.
“In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, your Community Arts Center of Cambria County closed its facility on Monday, March 16, 2020 and reopened officially this Monday, June 29, 2020. The organization is embarking on socially distanced Summer Arts Camps, Adult Classes & Workshops, an outdoor Coffee House Series, an outdoor theatrical production, and an indoor exhibition with CDC and Governor Wolf guidelines in affect. Our current goal is to give you a safe variety of artistic offerings during these uncertain times. We thank you all for your support and understanding as things have transitioned so greatly over the last four months. (At this point, masks are required for all participation in activities. A few outdoor/well ventilated initiatives will be left to the discretion of the attendee and announced at the particular event.)
We will continue to take our lead from the White House, Governor Wolf, and the CDC’s recommendations regarding Social Distancing, the Requirements of Facial Masks, and Sanitation Protocols. The name COMMUNITY Arts Center wasn’t chosen by accident - it was because even in uncertain times like this, we want our community to know that you are important to us, and that we are working hard to provide you new ways of positive artistic opportunities, as we anxiously await our new normal. If for any reason you would like to contact us, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (814) 255-6515.”
