Cedar Centre Hall

 

The Cedar Centre for the Arts is a five building complex with a rich history of service to the community. Built in the 1930's, these Art Deco style buildings served as the City of Lancaster's municipal court house, sheriff's station, jail, health station and Memorial Dance Hall. The Memorial Hall was later used as the Cedar Street Theater.

These buildings were recognized as Historical Landmarks by the state of Califomia in 1994, shortly before their acquisition by the Antelope Valley Allied Arts Association.

The first floor of the building at the corner of Lancaster Boulevard and Cedar Avenue has been designated the Cedar Centre Art Gallery. This is the main showplace for the AVAAA. It is wheelchair accessible and admission is always free. The Gallery is divided into three sections. The first is filled with artworks of the Co-op members who are responsible for hosting visitors to the gallery. The middle section is devoted to all members of AVAAA who are invited to show one work every month at no charge. The third section features special exhibitions, one-person shows and during the hiatus between monthly shows, a high school or middle school show of selected student artists.

Displaying artists may be local or from the Greater Los Angeles area. Currently, the gallery is serving as a repository for art magazines, videos, and books which will eventually become part of an art reference library.

We are on the lookout for any donations. It is our intention to create and maintain a thriving arts center which will join with other cultural forces in the community such as the Lancaster Museum And Art Gallery, the Performing Arts Center, and the Lancaster Library, in providing a place where individuals may actively participate in creating art.
