Blue Line Arts
Established over 50 years ago, Blue Line Arts is a non-profit organization and active community resource established to promote the arts in Roseville, California. Blue Line Arts showcases the works of regional and national artists, complete with flexible exhibition space suitable for small musical performances, lectures and demonstrations. A special children's gallery provides a dedicated location for children's programs.
Our major goals for 2014-2015 are:
- To promote interest and participation in the arts (visual, literary, musical and interactive) by providing educational programming and community wide events that are accessible to all regardless of socioeconomic conditions.
- To provide educational art opportunities in the community at large, including youth and families, to engage in and become comfortable with the creative process of making, exhibiting, experiencing and enjoying the arts in their many forms.
- To provide music programming in the downtown corridor.
- To enhance the quality of life in our community by strengthening and enriching it using the location in the redevelopment downtown district and through outreach to homes, schools, parks and familiar, convenient locations.
For 50 years, Blue Line Arts (formerly known as Roseville Arts - Blue Line Gallery) has been a valuable, active community resource, providing arts education programs, arts scholarships, gallery exhibitions, competitions, tours, festivals, school field trips, and community events in the City of Roseville's redevelopment district. With the development of Blue Line Arts, the destination has become an anchor for the downtown redevelopment district.
