Top Accomplishments for 2014-2015 Season
Top Goals for 2014-15
In 2015, we will continue advancing the Center’s mission and providing quality arts programming for our community.
Out of the vision of a handful of citizens and following years of planning, fundraising and hard work, the deteriorating building began to breathe anew in August of 2004 when construction began for the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts (SCCA). The 24 million dollar project was made possible though state and federal historic tax credits, the City of Suffolk, a variety of grants and generous support from the private sector. Planning for the inaugural-season programming, art exhibitions, classes, events and activities began.
Since its grand opening in September 2006, the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts has educated, entertained and enlightened tens of thousands of visitors from Suffolk, Hampton Roads and surrounding communities. SCCA programming and arts events attract new tourists to Suffolk and give locals added reasons to support their city’s revitalized downtown. Nothing has done more to build a sense of community in Suffolk than the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts.
