The Plastic Club

A beloved home-away-from-home to many, The Plastic Club has supported and nourished artists since 1897. Today, The Club offers ten drawing workshops a week, monthly all-media exhibitions, and a lively program of film, dance, music, poetry, and more. It remains 100% volunteer-run and not-for-profit. All are welcome.
