Directions: Google Maps and other online mapping programs can have a problem directing you to the VAC. Here are the easiest directions to follow: heading north or south on Hwy. 101, turn west on NW 3rd St. Proceed straight down the hill. At the second stop sign, turn right. One short block later, turn left under Nye Beach archway. Proceed straight to Nye Beach turnaround and parking lot. The VAC is the large blue and gray building off the turnaround. To director offices and upper parking lot: turn west of Hwy. 101 at NW 3rd St. Head down hill. At second stop sign, continue straight 1.5 blocks, with the Sylvia Beach Hotel remaining on your left. The VAC administrative offices can be accessed through the smaller, upper parking lot.
On Thursday, May 24, you’re invited to the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts “Know Your VAC” for the local hospitality industry, Newport Visual Arts Center (VAC) patrons, and guests to enjoy an open house, celebrating recent improvements to the building. New flooring, new tables and chairs and remodeled bathrooms are just a few of the improvements you will notice.
Because May 24 falls on the same day as Bob Dylan’s birthday, and VAC staff Tom Webb and Cristina Kartsioukas happen to be huge Bob Dylan fans, it seems like the perfect combination of festivities.
The event will run from 4 to 7 p.m., admission is free, light refreshments will be served.
