The Frank Creech Art Gallery opened December 3, 2010 and is operating as a unit of Auxiliary Enterprises and is currently working with Performing Arts as a cultural outreach per the Strategic Arts Plan. The purpose is to plan and develop a rich array of culturally diverse fine arts/visual arts programming for Johnston County and the east central North Carolina corridor in order to educate, enlighten, enrich and entertain citizens and patrons of all ages, and to provide leadership and support to advance cultural/fine arts/visual arts and nourish appreciation for various art forms in the community.
