Our Arts Center

Leith Gaines, CCA Executive Director


It is difficult time to navigate through each day. I try to stay productive yet I find it hard to stay focused on the task at hand when unprecedented information is flooding my thoughts. Though my staff and I are safely working from home our minds are racing to find solutions for how CCA can serve our community during this global pandemic
