Introducing The Commons Community and Arts Center.  The Commons aims to be a broad-service community center for Viroqua, hosting numerous events, weekly groups, workshops, classes, as well as offering a comfortable and resource-rich space for people of all generations to come and enjoy.

Regularly scheduled classes/meetings at The Ark will continue as classes at The Commons.  These as well as new activities will be announced in local community calendars, on this website, on our Facebook page, and elsewhere.  We expect the transformation of The Ark into The Commons to continue through fall and winter, and we plan for a “Grand Reopening Celebration” in the spring.

The Ark Cafe is closed at this time.  We will be introducing an exciting new tea-room shortly, offering drinks and inexpensive pastries and snacks.

Thank you for your patience and support of The Commons (formerly “The Ark Center for the Arts.”)

The Ark is a 501c3 non profit organization. We depend on donations to continue to provide classes, theater performances, film, dance, circus arts, and community gatherings to the Viroqua region. Check out the Ark Calendar:  Follow us on Facebook arkviroqua & Instagram thearkviroqua

The Commons appreciates your donations all year!
