Enriching Possibilities for the Campus and Community
A facility that helps dreams take flight
The Arts Initiative supports the design and construction of a professional-grade fine and performing art space. Teaching, performance, gallery and administrative space within will serve a wide breath of programs.
The 130,000-square-foot facility includes:
A concert hall seating 750 - 1,000
Classrooms for music, theater and dance instruction
Administrative space to support academics and performances
Lasting economic and cultural impact
Johnson City’s economic and cultural growth is directly tied to the Arts Initiative. The center will act as a hub for artists and patrons in the region, 45 percent of which travel from outside the region.
Notable benefits include increased tourism revenues, added jobs and more opportunities to attract prominent traveling art exhibits and performance groups.
