Community Arts

Note: Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, public performances have been postponed for the month of March. The WHAM art exhibit is still open - see schedule below. 
The Community Arts program offers adults and youth opportunities to experience and participate in the arts through original and professional-caliber performing and visual arts events, as well as workshops, classes, lectures and partnerships with renowned arts organizations in New York City.

Community Arts events take place at the Bernie Wohl Center at Columbus Avenue and West 91st Street. The Center's versatile auditorium serves as a concert hall, theater in the round, dance performance space, art gallery and film venue.
