Cultural Activities Center (CAC)
Evolving from a wildly successful three-day arts festival sponsored in 1958 by the City Women’s Federation, The Cultural Activities Center was born as an area arts council, a clearinghouse for arts and artists. With the 1957 launching of the Russian Sputnik, schools were emphasizing science and math. A goal of the arts council was to link cultural arts with the emphasis on science. Through the years many area citizens have left their mark on the cultural life of this area.
