About a hundred folks attended a ground breaking ceremony for the Fuquay-Varina Arts Center, located at 123 E. Vance Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC, on Friday, March 24, 2017.
The Arts Center, dedicated to the visual and performing arts, will include specialized classrooms for painting, computer media and several other types of art, a dance studio, an art gallery and a 300+ seat theater. Creative programming will include offerings for all ages, as well as summer camps, special events, and theater performances.
The exterior of the facility will be painted brick to correspond with many other downtown structures. The side of the building facing South Fuquay Avenue will feature a mural (actual design to be determined), with a long bench across the front of the theater lobby and large windows at the front of the building, highlighting activity in the art gallery and the dance studio.
The project is expected to take approximately 10 months to complete.
