The Bay City Arts Center is a community workshop, gallery, art school, auditorium, yoga studio, dining hall and radio station wrapped up in one historic building in downtown Bay City. It’s also a collection of volunteers and friends who come together in the name of art, expression, and reverence for the beauty around us. The Arts Center offers monthly art shows with First Friday receptions. Tuesdays feature yoga classes by Emily Fanjoy, and the third Sunday of every month begins with a legendary pancake breakfast.
