The Colfax Cultural Center is one of four main buildings on the Colfax campus. Residing in a former elementary school that was built in 1898, three art galleries are in place, showing various pieces from local artists. These spaces are managed by a gallery committee comprised of area artists and art educators. Many diverse groups also hold their meetings in these same spaces, resulting in a revolving door of fresh audiences along with our seasoned gallery patrons.
Once called the Genesis Gallery, the Robert Seifert Gallery is in one of the old classrooms. It was renamed to honor the first gallery preparator, who hung the exhibitions for over 18 years. The Court Gallery resides in the main hall of the building, which also doubles as the waiting area for the other tenants of the building. The wood sculpture of an alligator stands prominently in this gallery, bringing joy the children who see it. At about half the size of the size of the former classrooms, the Paper Room is the third and final gallery space at the Colfax Cultural Center, which has a more intimate feel due to its small size.
