Cary Arts Center

The Town of Cary has just opened the doors on one more reason to love living here: the Cary Arts Center.

Located in the historic building that most recently housed the Cary Elementary School in downtown on Academy St. and Dry Ave., the Cary Arts Center is set-up similar to a community college, where individuals and families can register for an array of skills-based, recreational and general education courses centered on the arts. There are also exhibit halls, classrooms, studios, offices and meeting rooms. (Don’t let “arts” sway your thinking—there are a ton of classes for more than just “art.”)

This is an outstanding addition to the community, something about which everyone living in the Triangle should be proud. The Cary Arts Center also demonstrates insightful leadership on the part of the town brass. Instead of demolishing another great old building or converting it to office space, we now have a haven for creative learning in the center of community, which should coincide nicely with leadership’s efforts to revitalize the surrounding streetscapes and business community.

Starting the third week in June, Cary Arts Center will hold a number of open-to-the-public introductory meetings, such as a roundtable discussion with the architects and planners of the center on June 12, open house events on Saturday, June 18 and Friday, July 29; a family and senior (55+) Town Scavenger Hunt on July 23 and Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” from August 4 to 7.

Classes will be gearing up gradually through the summer and will feature as wide an array of opportunities for enrichment as possible, such as Spanish Conservation for Beginners, Youth Drama, Beginning Ballet and Knife Skills for cooking. Course programs will focus on everyone from preschool age to senior citizens.

In truth, we don’t have enough space to discuss everything that the Cary Arts Center will bring to our community so we strongly encourage you to visit for the full scoop on everything available. However, you should also look for the Cary Arts Center program brochure in local grocery stores and retailers, which you can download right here in full. You can also choose to download individual pages based on subject areas on the same page.
