It’s official – the former St. Stanislaus Church is now the Perham Center for the Arts.

In addition, Perham Center for the Arts is now officially a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


Both of these major milestones for the new arts center have been reached within the last month, with the transfer of title of the building complete as of June 4, and the nonprofit status achieved in May.
