Simpsonville has received a $500,000 grant for the renovation of the Simpsonville Arts Center. Appalachian Regional Commission, an organization that supports natural and cultural assets, provided the grant. 

Exterior and interior renovations

Beginning in 2020, the Arts Center will receive both exterior and interior renovations in order to extend their community theater opportunities and cultural and educational activities. The project is estimated to take two years and will cost $2,446,960.

“Fundraising efforts, fiscal responsibility and the grant awarded by ARC move Simpsonville one step closer to providing a public space for the arts that will contribute to the local economy and enhance quality of life,” Mayor Janice Curtis said.
