O

n a quiet street near Sacramento Field, there is one building that stands out from the rest. Painted in shades of peach, red, and blue, with an artist’s palette weathervane on the roof, Maud Morgan Arts inspires creativity. Named after the artist Maud Morgan (1903-99), the arts center offers classes and workshops for all ages, from children as young as 14 months to retirees, and studio space for independent artists. Small exhibitions are shown in the Chandler Gallery, with original work by Maud Morgan displayed along the staircase and upstairs. O’Brien
