On August 12, 2014 the City of Lancaster announced the grand opening of the newly restored Cedar Center for the Arts, which had undergone major restoration over nine months. The new facility is comprised of several distinct areas including the MOAH:CEDAR Art Gallery, the Cedar Memorial Hall and arts classroom spaces. Many of these unique spaces can be rented for private events.

Spotlight Café is held at the Cedar Memorial Hall every Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission is free and everyone is welcome to participate.

Our monthly Concert Series is also held at the Cedar Memorial Hall, and features great tunes put on by local artists and performers. Admission is Free.

Join us to draw in Cedar Hall with our free Live Figure Drawing sessions.

Beginner Sessions (Clothed Model, All Ages) 
are beginner-oriented sessions offered every second Sunday of the month from 2:30-3:30 PM. These classes are shorter and will focus on one pose for the entirety of the session, with constructive critique offered at the end.

Advanced Sessions (Clothed Model, All Ages) are offered twice a month, every second Sunday of the month from 3:30-5:30 PM as and every fourth Sunday of the month from 1:00-3;00 PM
Nude Model Sessions (Must be 18+) are offered on the fourth Sunday of the month from 3:30-5:30 PM

“The Cedar Center for the Arts is a quintessential piece of Lancaster history and a cornerstone of our cultural legacy,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “To restore this Center is to breathe new life into an artistic and cultural institution which has served our community well since the Great Depression.”
