About Us

The Pontiac Creative Arts Center of Pontiac is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

Welcome to the Pontiac Creative Arts Center. The Pontiac Creative Arts Center is located at 47 Williams Street in Pontiac and is a non-profit organization serving the North Oakland community area with art education, art programs and exhibitions.

The Arts Center was created through efforts of Dr. Harold Furlong, a World War I hero, holder of the Congressional Medal of Honor, and physician. He believed passionately that children deserved a place in their community where they could see, learn about and experience art.

Since 1965, the Arts Center has served the community in a variety of ways. Ongoing exhibits are presented; classes, summer Confetti Camp and various community events are held during the year. In addition, the Arts Center supports local schools by presenting workshops and performances and by sending artists in to the school to hold art classes.
