In 2001, Fulton County opened its doors to the Southwest Arts Center, the first facility built by Fulton County solely for the arts. Located on a 27-acre campus in the quiet Cascade community, Southwest Arts Center is dedicated to providing quality arts instruction and programs in a positive and creative environment. The facility features classroom space, built specifically for arts instruction, visual art exhibition programming, and staged performances in the Black Box Theater. Fulton County, under the guidance of the Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture, transformed the 19,000 square-foot Southwest Arts Center into 42,000 square-foot vibrant cultural campus, with the addition of the Performance Theater & Gallery, in 2008. The Performance Theater & Gallery features a commissioned public art painting by acclaimed painter, Louis Delsarte, a 375-seat auditorium and theater, and the only fine art gallery in Southwest Fulton County.
The Groundbreaking for the NEW "Aviation Community Cultural Center" was held on June 27, 2013. The center is a new facility presently designed as a 16,200 square foot facility on the grounds of the Fulton County Charlie Brown Airport. The site hosts a variety of cultural and community services sponsored by Fulton County. Click this link to read and view the ACCC Community Design Presentation.
