Spiva Center for the Arts provides year round programming, changing exhibits, educational classes for adults and children, artists talks, and special events—based on a theme. (There are some exceptions, such as the annual Membership Show, PhotoSpiva, and Small Works Auction.)
Spiva offers three venues for exhibition:
Main Gallery presents work by artists who have achieved national or international recognition.
Regional Gallery is designated for artists residing within 100 miles of Joplin, Missouri.
Upstairs Gallery is available for a fee according to schedule availability.
