Images from the New Cedar Center

The Cedar Center is now open and is now part of the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH).

People have been talking about the changes and there is hope (again) for this venue to be given the chance to live the life it has always wanted to live (and has sometimes been able to live).

Congrats to all those who put in work to keep this place alive and who have renewed the Cedar Center time and time again. 

Cedar Center Gallery now hosting a show by Jason Baker

Benjamin Andrews conducted an interview with Jason Baker whose work is currently on display at the Cedar Centre art gallery in downtown Lancaster.  You may be familiar with Mr. Andrews from his stop-motion animation, his photography (which has appeared in local publications including SATURATION), and from ilivetodayAV, the social networking site dedicated to life in the Antelope Valley.

We encourage everyone to check out Jason Baker’s show at the Cedar Centre as well as Benjamin Andrews’s work and ilivetodayAV.com.
