Our Mission

The Harris Center for the Arts seeks to enrich the lives of people throughout California's capital region by providing venues and opportunities to experience artistic work, celebrate cultural traditions and participate in the creative process.

It does this through operation of a $50 million, 80,000 square foot regional arts center opened in 2011, and an evolving array of vibrant programs geared for people of all ages and backgrounds. Among these:

  • Presentations bring artists from around the world to the Center to perform and share,
  • Partnerships make the Center a home for local artists and arts organizations, and
  • Productions are work created and/or developed on site.
The Center is home to Folsom Lake College's visual and performing arts instructional offerings, as well as other life-long learning programs for the broader community.
