The JACCThis Page Last Updated: January 11th, 2013
Built in 1959 as the National Guard Armory, this building was retired in 2004, and lay empty for several years, until the City and Borough of Juneau Assembly, under Mayor Bruce Botelho, turned the facility over to the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council to manage as the Juneau Arts & Culture Center.
We rallied over 200 volunteers to completely clean and overhaul the building in September 2007, and we opened the building October 1 of that year.
Community support for the facility continues to grow, recently expressed through a Legacy gift of handmade cabinets for our Gallery Store in the Lobby, from Kathy and John Ellis, and most recently by the amazing contribution by Herr’s Painting, which is donating its services to paint the facility, with a commitment to maintain the exterior as needed.
