This two-level, 44,000-square-foot performing arts center is dedicated to visual and performing arts, as well as educational programming, and will provide state-of-the-art spaces for artists to work.
When it’s complete, Tribby Arts Center will include a grand entrance and atrium gallery, full-time art gallery, practice rooms for musicians, dance and theater arts studio, literary lounge and arts library, and numerous studios for painting, crafts, pottery, quilting, stained glass and photography, as well as a 400-seat, tiered theater.
Additionally, an art gallery and shop will display and sell residents’ artworks and host a wide variety of exhibitions while the Collectors’ Gallery will rotate art from residents’ own collections. Bonus amenities include a gift shop featuring artists’ work, a coffee bistro and a sculpture garden that will surround the arts center, offering delightful spots to relax, read, stroll, create and enjoy art and music.
