Immerse yourself in classic and contemporary art at Sugar Hill's new City Art Gallery. The bright and airy space casts a spotlight on an eclectic mix of changeable featured works and travelling exhibitions from local and non-local artists. Located in the Broadstone across from the Eagle Theatre on West Broad Street, the Sugar Hill Art Gallery adjoins the Sugar Hill History Center. Both are free and open to the public.
