Spectrum School of the Arts and Gallery, DeKoven Center East Building


Building Information

Building Information: 
Spectrum School of the Arts and Community Gallery is located at the historic DeKoven Center in "Park Hall." It is the first building, erected in 1852, in the Quadrangle (modeled after English colleges such as Oxford and Cambridge) and is Gothic Revival in style. DeKoven Center was founded, that same year, as Racine College. In present day, the center is a venue for retreats, conferences, weddings and events. At Spectrum, our spacious galleries offer outstanding views of the lake as well as a variety of artwork (many for sale!)

Visitor Experience

Visitor Experience: 
Celebrating 37 years, Spectrum offers quality arts education with individualized instruction in small classes. Our cooperative, alternative school and gallery, celebrates individual creativity by showcasing artists in a beautiful, non-judgmental environment where artists choose their own work for exhibition. Classes include painting, drawing, pottery, sculpting and raku, photography including b&w film dark room as well as other offerings throughout the year. Exhibitions and events are varied with the public invited to participate at many. A short tour will be provided through the building's studio spaces and galleries.
