The Hoffman Center is a community arts center located in the charming coastal town of Manzanita, Oregon.
The Center is comprised of two buildings. One houses our Ceramics Studio, as well as a multi-purpose room where we hold musical performances, workshops, classes and author readings, as well summer art and drama camps for kids. Across the street, the Hoffman House Studios are home to studios that artists can rent to pursue their work for a nominal fee and a class room for small group meetings.
The Hoffman Center is an Oregon nonprofit 501(c)3 organization which supports and encourages artistic, cultural and educational activities in north Tillamook County by providing facilities, funding, promotion and other assistance.
Lloyd and Myrtle Hoffman were long-time and beloved residents of Manzanita. Upon their passing, their trust directed that their home and assets be used to start a community center for the arts and education. Founded in 2004, the Hoffman Center is the still-developing fulfillment of their dream — a place to nurture artistic endeavors – creating, performing and appreciating.
