Mission Statement

The 2nd City Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art gallery + performance space that was incorporated on January 1, 2000. We are dedicated to supporting and promoting artists, their work and art education. Our mission is to expose the public to the wealth of
creativity that exists. Our exhibitions are usually thematic and explore topics, from each artists’ unique perspective, that impact
or interest the community as a whole. The gallery provides a welcoming space where the public can come together to learn
about the various cultures, traditions, lifestyles and philosophies that are part of our world. Our arts educational outreach is offered to teenagers living in Foster Care group homes. In keeping with the gallery’s philosophy that art should be available to
everyone, admission is free.


The gallery is located in the Wille’s Building, which was built in 1930, and was an industrial tin shop until 2003. The architectural integrity of the building has been maintained and features Deco elements. Our 2400 sq. foot interior includes a large main gallery with 12’ high walls for our juried exhibitions and a small windowed gallery that serves as an exhibition space for our youth workshops. The view through the gallery’s rustic barn doors invites you to walk through and discover the Sato Garden. Our urban garden is a perfect place for relaxing, reading a book or eating your lunch. Both the gallery and the garden are disabled accessible. Free internet available during gallery hours.
