Arts Incarnate

Through all genres of the fine, visual, and performing arts, the mission of Arts Incarnate is to seek and experience Beauty, Truth, and Justice through the Arts. Formerly known as the 292 N. Gallery, Arts Incarnate was developed out of a desire that The Church of the Incarnation had to connect its people to art and bring art into the church building. It is the church's belief that the long history of art in the church rests on one basic value: the church needs art (and artists) and artists need the church. We recognize that art does not have to be overtly religious to draw us closer to God. Drawing ourselves in, exposing ourselves, or simply sitting with art that expresses beauty, truth, and justice inherently brings us closer to our Creator. more

Clementine & Ruby’s Lounge

Owner Clay Clark's vision for this restaurant was an innovative space that focused not only on food, but also music and art. This concept is infused into every part of the business, from the changing menus and art-lined walls to the band line-up. Clementine always tops the list of great places to see music in town. With two stages for live music performances - upstairs or downstairs at Ruby's Lounge - they bring in local bands and bigger names on a regular basis. more
