The Carnegie Center for the Arts stands as a noble tribute to art in architecture. The local landmark with turn-of-the-century flair began as a community gift. It is one of the 1,679 public libraries constructed through the assistance of steel magnate, Andrew Carnegie. Today, the two-story brick building continues a tradition of education and community service as a gallery for traveling exhibits and local art. The Carnegie Center is on the National Register of Historic Places. Featuring a round, second-story gallery, this unique home to the Dodge City Arts Council provides gallery space and a small gift shop for local artisans.
