Frank Bette Center for the Arts
Even just from the exterior, the bright yellow Victorian building that houses the Frank Bette Center for the Arts is clearly an artistic place. The former owner was Frank Bette himself, an exquisite expert in restoring antiques, particularly furnishings, who bequeathed the house upon his death for use as a place where people could meet, show art, discuss new ideas, and express their creativity. The Center does its very best to uphold his vision, and regularly offers classes and shows new exhibits in their galleries. From poetry slams, musical jams, and formal art shows, to workshops and demos hosted by talented craftsmen and women, the Frank Bette Center for the Arts is as beautiful and unique as its founder could ever have imagined.
