The Waseca Arts Center has found a new home. The Waseca Arts Council has taken possession of a two-story 9,000-square-foot building in downtown Waseca that is more than 4 times the size of the center’s existing space. The search for a new home took approximately 8 years. The hope is to have the new facility open by this coming June. The State Street building now houses an antiques and consignment business and at one time was a J.C. Penney store. Renovation work is expected to cost over $400,000, with the work being done as money becomes available through fundraisers. The new site will allow the Waseca Arts Center to offer more services and classroom areas for hands-on art instruction.
