About the Art Center

The Independence Historical Museum and Art Center is proud to expand its mission to focus on an "Art Center." The museum has over 100 permanent artworks that adorn the Exhibit Hall and the lower level hallways. The annual Verdigris Valley Art Exhibit is in its 61st year and offers an opportunity for area artists to enter an adjudicated show. The next show TBD.

Artists meet every two weeks from 9AM to 12 noon. Artists are welcome to come paint watercolors in a group environment. Each artist brings their own equipment and talents for a fun time. Fill out request to be put on the notice of meeting dates.
