RAC celebrates the study, creation and appreciation of the arts through classes, exhibitions and events open to all in the community. We are the only center for the arts in Norwalk and have almost 200 members, including nationally recognized professionals and talented amateurs from Fairfield County and beyond. 

Our former firehouse overlooking the Five Mile River includes a bright public gallery where exhibiting members can show and sell their high-quality artwork during 10 exhibitions each year. RAC exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public. Children and adults, from beginners to pros, are encouraged to develop their creativity, style and skill during classes and workshops in our comfortable art school environment. These activities plus lectures, documentary screenings, musical events and special events attract participants and visitors from Connecticut and New York. 

We welcome groups, schools, curators, interior designers and architects for RAC Gallery tours by appointment. Art lives here!
