NOTO Arts Center Grand Opening


Superintendent Dr. Kevin Singer was among the dignitaries who spoke at the grand opening of the NOTO Arts Center on May 6th. The arts center, at 922 North Kansas Avenue, is the result of a partnership between Topeka Public Schools, the Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University and Heartland Visioning.

The Topeka High Drum line put on a demonstration on the street outside the arts center, much to the delight of several hundred people who gathered to watch the grand opening. McCarter Elementary School 3rd grade student Kaya Beitz and Sammie Stuart, a junior at Hope Street, cut the ribbon before the crowd was invited inside for cake and to see the student art on display.

Art classes will begin in the near future for people of all ages from elementary to adult.
