Pullen Arts Center, at 105 Pullen Road, Raleigh, has reopened after a major renovation and expansion. It was closed for 3 1/2 years while undergoing its first major renovation since it opened in 1961.
It is now a 22,000 square foot facility, and includes a large gallery and multiple studios, each dedicated to one area of the arts.
Read on to learn all about Pullen Arts Center, and then learn about a special Halloween event taking place on October 30th, 2021.
Studios at Pullen Arts Center
- Pottery Studio
- Jewelry Studio
- Painting & Drawing Studio
- Bookmaking & Printing Studio
Pullen Arts Center is making the arts affordable with its open studio program. Once you’ve taken a 6-week class in one of the four studios, which costs a total of $100 to $150, you’re eligible for an open studio membership at just $70 a year for Raleigh residents ($85 a year for non-residents.)
The open studio membership makes it possible for students to continue learning and creating after their class ends, with access to all the equipment in the studio.
Please note that you will have access only to the studio in which you took the class. This is to make sure you know how to use the equipment. But if you have taken a class in more than one studio, it’s still just $70 (or $85 a year) to have access to all the studios in which you are proficient.
The Pullen Arts Center will be holding a dedication on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021, at 10 a.m. The event will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by tours of the arts center until noon. The ribbon cutting will take place inside, due to inclement weather.
