Guild Hall is a center for the arts, entertainment and education. It has presented visual and performing arts programs for the past 76 years; 40,000 visitors entered its doors in 2009. Guild Hall does have a permanent collection and nearly 1,900 works of art from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, including paintings, sculptures, prints, watercolors, photographs and drawings by such notables as Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, William deKooning and Roy Lichtenstein. The museum displays many local artists. Also on the premises is The John Drew Theater, named for area resident and great great grandfather of actress Drew Barrymore. The striking 360-seat auditorium has a balcony, removable orchestra seating and blue and white striped tent-like ceiling that sweeps up to a chandelier of the glass balloons. Since 1931, it has hosted plays, musicals and lectures with the likes of Mercedes Ruehl, Alec Baldwin, Regina Carter and Michael Feinstein taking the stage.
