Carnegie Center (Arts Council)
The Carnegie Center is located in the historic Carnegie Library. It originally opened in 1915 as the Carnegie Library. Renovated in 2007, the Carnegie Center features a gallery on the 1st floor and dedicated office space and classroom space on the 2nd floor. Winning the 2008 Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Excellence in Rehabilitation Award, the Carnegie Center is a beautiful facility to host events.
The Fitzgerald-Ben Hill Arts Council currently staffs the facility and maintains a rotating calendar of visual art exhibits, performances, and events, as well as, classes (such as crafting, sewing, painting, and yoga), clubs, and camps. Stop by and create something at the Creation Station anytime the flag is out. A donation is nice (but not required) to use the supplies at the Creation Station. A table to work at and a cart full of art and craft supplies will keep you busy for hours.
The Carnegie Center is also available to rent for parties, performances, training events, and meetings and can accommodate up to 100 people, depending on setup. The warm atmosphere is conducive to intimate meetings and programs for both business and private events.
