A bustling community center all year 'round, the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (locally known as "the JACC") is home to the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Gallery featuring monthly exhibits by regional artists, the Lobby Shop, filled with unique local artwork, music, and books, and serves as a venue for performances, parties, meetings, and presentations. Built in 1959 as the National Guard Armory, the facility has been operated by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council for the past four years as a place to showcase, support, and encourage the arts in Juneau. Visitors will find the unusual, the oddball, and the unexpected here. During the summers, the Rock Around the Block parties on Friday evenings offer live music, dancing, food, vendors, produce, and arts and crafts, during the winter expect to find everything from cabaret to miniature golf. You can even wave to your friends from the live web cam: Let them see you in Alaska! Plus - if you are missing your pet, we have cats & dogs!
