The Arts Center is the name of the building and the organization that includes any clubs, classes, or organizations associated with the Arts Center.

The Arts League and the Performing Arts Association are the foundation groups, meaning they are the ones that are most involved in keeping the building open. These organizations are a cooperative of artists. They show their art and they volunteer their time in maintaining and opening the center. Only through their cooperative efforts does the organization survive.

The Arts Center Organization is a Non-Profit Organization, but the Artists are not. Each Artist is expected to pay sales tax on any art that they sell.
