Our Mission

To promote the arts by strengthening the community and the talent in the Southern Middle Tennessee Area through accessible presentation and educational programs.

As we continue to bring the arts to the community and beyond, we continue to look to the downtown area of Columbia to create a NEW arts center as part of the revitalization of Columbia’s historic downtown area.
