Tahawus Cultural Center

Tahawus Cultural Center


Tah-ha-wus is said to mean “Cloudsplitter“—we “Reach through the Sky” – because there is no limit to creativity and learning!

Our mission is to create, develop, and present works and ideas that connect artists and audiences, children and adults, and to strengthen and enliven communities through diverse exposure, access to, quality training and participation in the arts. 

As a gathering place for learning and a catalyst of community growth, Tahawus Center engages people with a range of expressions in the arts and humanities including activities in art, dance, film, music, STEM education, symposia, and community events.  Tahawus serves as a vital space where children and adults connect with each other around familiar and unfamiliar topics.  Through partnerships and collaborations with local businesses, funding organizations, educators, artists, and ideas-filled individuals, the Tahawus Center is proud to play a key role in supporting and inspiring its community – and its visitors.

The Tahawus Center is home to the Windows Gallery and the Cloudsplitter Dance Studio.
