Capital Campaign

Tryon Fine Arts Center’s Capital Campaign provides for an expansion and remodel of TFAC’s existing building. When fully funded, the Capital Campaign will provide for the current and growing community demand, with 3 major goals for substantial structural improvements:

  • Flexible performance space for student education, intimate concerts and lectures, and enhanced exhibits space
  • Improved patron accessibility
  • Operational efficiency, safety, and additional storage

TFAC lacks space for audiences of ~100 for concerts or performances. TFAC’s existing 315-seat auditorium is perfect for concerts and theatrical performances and the Peterson Amphitheater has been exceedingly popular for jazz, bluegrass and Americana musical programs.

A new addition off the rear of TFAC will provide that needed space and when combined with interior of the existing building, seating for 150 people for community gatherings can be enjoyed. Improved safety and efficiency is a high priority in this new design to meet the demand for the vibrant and dynamic place TFAC is today. Building access has been an issue throughout the life of the building for disabled patrons. The new design is addressing this existing problem.

The Capital Campaign Committee has established a three staged approach for construction. Stage I will include an additional building and modify some of the existing interior at a cost of $1.5 Million and is scheduled to commence First Quarter of 2019.
