The Port Moody Arts Centre is housed in the historic Old City Hall and Centennial Appleyard House, both registered heritage buildings built in 1913 and 1910 respectively. The buildings are a significant part of Port Moody’s history, with their uses over the years as varied as they continue to be today. Old City Hall has served as a police station, jail, and firehall, as well as lesser known uses as a Cold War bomb shelter and kindergarten. Touring the building today, you will still see beautiful original brickwork and finishings, including a vault in the Ann Kitching Gallery.

Our gallery showcases local, national, and international artists through professionally curated exhibitions. PoMoArts is dedicated to nurturing artistic talent through our Ceramic Artist in Residence program, annual Kwi Am Choi Scholarship, and Emerging Visual Arts Endowment Campaign.
