Founded in 1991 by local beloved medical Doctor, Bill McCabe and his artist wife, Annis McCabe, The Sedalia Center has enjoyed its years operating as a non-profit, with its mission of inspiring all to explore the living arts and the art of living… and along the way, discover the creativity and imagination in each of us.
As with all organizations built on a service-oriented foundation, The Sedalia Center has a responsibility to stay relevant and innovative in that service to most effectively enrich the lives of those folks living in our local rural community.
And with that charge before us, The Sedalia Center is excited to announce the launching of Sedalia Gives Back: Local Community Enrichment Programs. (See below for a sample list of enrichment programs.)
What’s more: in addition to adding community resource, educational and enrichment programs, all local folks get into certain Sedalia Center events at the new discounted LOCAL TICKET price.
