PAAL is in the middle of a renaissance. Thanks in part to a grant from The Cameron Foundation, PAAL’s building at 7 E. Old St. was renovated and expanded to include an Education Center in 2010.
Thanks also to the City of Petersburg, which generously donated to PAAL the lot adjoining their building, the organization is currently working to develop an open air sculpture garden space for the community to enjoy.
Meanwhile, PAAL has also been busy growing its programming. PAAL is also increasing the number and diversity of classes for adults and youth alike, while continuing to provide monthly exhibits that offer the community high-caliber visual art as well as periodic special events designed to celebrate the visual arts.
All PAAL programming is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
