Welcome to Center Screen! MogoARTS partners with incredible organizations who in response to these unprecedented times, have brought art to our living rooms. We are sharing a curated collection of that streaming content that we have lovingly named, Center Screen. We are proud to showcase our partners and bring the arts community together. We know the show will go on, but for now, it’ll continue right at home!

Each week we will be highlighting new featured content and events from our community. “Arts opens the closets, airs out the cellars and attics. It brings healing.” – Julia Cameron.
