The Arc purchased the site of the old Meadville Club (953 Market Street) in 2018. Our primary goal is to create a community venue where Arc individuals and others from the Meadville community can safely gather and form natural relationships through collaborative participation in arts, culture, and community events.
Art and Environment Initiative.
The lead artist on this project is Amara Geffen, director of the Art & Environment Initiative, which promotes regional revitalization & beautification through arts-based placemaking and the creation of community-centered public art. The wooly mammoth sculpture pictured left, was developed by Geffen through an Our Town Grant, which she directed in Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania. The sculpture is located at Fireman's Beach.
