booking fac spaces

The Fine Arts Center is home to a variety of unique and beautiful spaces and across the programming calendars for our Museum, Theatre, and Art School we keep them very busy! While this mission based work – art exhibitions, performing arts events, touring programs, art classes, and other important educational interactions — may limit our opportunities for external event partnerships and space rentals, we recognize the desirability of our spaces and make our facilities available to the community when possible.

Below is more information about our process for evaluating the high volume of requests received how you can check availability for FAC spaces or propose possible programming partners. Thank you for considering the Fine Arts Center for your event!
