Our Future

New Performing Arts Building

Planned for 206 Market Street

Winnsboro Center for the Arts
WCA is a multidisciplinary arts center serving Northeast Texas. Located on Market St., it anchors the Cultural District where it offers entertainment, educational programming, festivals and many other opportunities for cultural experiences. Steady growth in recent years has led to severe space limitations making it difficult to meet the needs of the community.

The Vision
The expansion of WCA on Market St. will serve as a catalyst to attract both residents and visitors to gather and enjoy all that the new pedestrian zone has to offer. Phase I of WCA’s expansion will be the construction of a beautiful Performing Arts Center at 206 Market St. Flexible seating will encourage a variety of activities in addition to concerts and theater. Phases II and III will eventually lead to the renovation of our original building and increased capacity for educational programming at the Annex. Integrating the arts into community life is key for a vibrant community!

Let’s make it happen!
Please invest in our future and that of our community by contributing to the Capital Campaign Fund. Both large and small gifts are important to make this a community effort, and naming opportunities are available for larger gifts. The Performing Arts Center is estimated to cost approximately $5M. Let’s contribute to community pride with a state-of-the art Performance Center!
