By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- On top of the usual fun associated with the First Friday Art walk, The NOTO Arts Center held it's grand opening, unveiling a number of beautiful pieces of art completed by local artists.

The vision began under former Topeka Public Schools Superintendent Kevin Singer along with Washburn University President Jerry Farley and with a quarter of a million dollar donation from Dr. Stan and Jody Teeter along with an indoor dedication from the Morris family, it has become a reality. Current USD 501 Superintendent Julie Ford then carried the partnership forward to include the Quincy Signature Art School and the NOTO Arts Center.

Students from Quincy Elementary performed a special song created specifically for Friday's Grand Opening.

The arts center is a collaboration with the USD 501 Topeka Public Schools and Washburn University, combining all forms of art, from music to still paintings.
