    We held our daughter's ceremony and reception at City Art. It was the perfect venue for our 125 guests. There was plenty of room for food, tables with chairs and a large dance floor. Our guests and vendors commented on what an amazing place City Art is. Many of our guests were from out of town and the location worked out perfectly. From rehearsal venue to nails and makeup, hotel- everything was within walking distance. Wendy at City Art spent an entire day making sure that a special request was available for us. We would use City Art again!
