Mission Statement

The ArtsCenter seeks to advance the arts and provide a richer arts experience through exhibition, education, and events that engage and inspire diverse audiences throughout the Triangle region of North Carolina and beyond.


The unique not-for profit community gathering place offers the best in:

  • Art Classes
  • Concerts
  • Theater Productions
  • Children and Family programs
  • Gallery Exhibits

Classes range from dance, to visual art, to writing, music and cooking. Toddlers to senior citizens enjoy the variety of courses offered during each of three annual sessions. Patrons contributing to the "Friends of The ArtsCenter" program are eligible to receive discounts on class tuition.

Concerts in one of The ArtsCenter's two theaters feature local, national and international music crisscrossing the musical spectrum. If you're looking for the blues, fusion, folk-rock, Celtic, or rock'n'roll, you'll find it at The ArtsCenter.

Theater productions feature local, national and international performers staging classics, improvisational theater and new works in The ArtsCenter's two theaters.

Children's and Family Programs are designed to bring the joy of live performance, with an educational, multicultural emphasis, into the homes and hearts of children and their families. The ArtsCenter reaches out to children through the SuperFun Series, which offers weekend and holiday entertainment; the School Show Series, designed to support school curriculum; KidsCamp, offering arts enrichment throughout the summer; and AfterSchool Arts Immersion (AAI); AAI, the area's only after school arts program for children ages 6-12.

The ArtsCenter Gallery, located in the center of the building, features the work of local and regional artists on a rotating basis. Monthly exhibits, special programs and workshops in the visual arts promote the work of emerging and established visual artists. The ArtsCenter now features a new front gallery as well, adjacent to our entrance.

The ArtsCenter is unique in that it serves both professionals and amateurs through its wide variety of programs, events and classes. The ArtsCenter began more than 25 years ago, then known as "The ArtSchool," as a single painting class. Today, The ArtsCenter serves more than 50,000 people each year.

The ArtsCenter's programs are supported in part by grants from The National Endowment for the Humanities, the North Carolina Arts Council, The Orange County Arts Commission, GlaxoSmithKline, the Grable Foundation, The Nicholson Foundation, the Oak Foundation, Duke Energy Foundation, Strowd Roses Foundation, Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, Shared Visions Foundation and the towns of Carrboro and Chapel Hill and Orange County.

We enjoy partnerships with many businesses and organizations which enhance programming and publicity in a variety of ways. We are grateful for their support and ask you to support them with your patronage.
