It is a milestone anniversary. A lengthy history of promoting the arts in Clinton. This year, the River Arts Center is fifty years old.

The Clinton Art Association began in 1962. The organization depends on a dedicated group of volunteers who operate both the center and Rainbow Pottery.

Many gifted local artists have paintings, pottery, and other items on display at the center.  Potter Patrick Mooney says the mission at the center is to encourage people to participate in the arts.

Resident watercolor artist Bonnie Temperley says the center is an important part of the culture of the community.

There are more than 200 items in the permanent collection. Included among those items are drawings from Des Moines Register Political Cartoonist Frank Miller.

There are also theatre productions, poetry readings, along with a fully equipped clay studio. Both the permanent collection and rotating exhibits are free to the public. 

The Clinton Art Association is a success story. A fifty year mission of promoting awareness of the arts and providing opportunities for the community to actively participate in a quality arts environment.
