Housed within City Hall is the Walter Lee Avery Art Gallery, which extends along the two twelve-foot wide corridors that lead to the Council Chambers located in the center of the building’s main floor. Two large glass enclosed display cases are also made available each month for the artwork of sculptures, glass blowers, and a wide range of crafts.
