Arts Center Groundbreaking on December 3

​The City of Coppell would like to announce the ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Coppell Arts Center on Monday, December 3, 2018 at 10:00AM. The Coppell Arts Center will be located in Old Town Coppell on the southern side of Travis/W. Main Street intersection. The community is invited to join the Mayor, Council and members of the Coppell Arts Community to mark the beginning of construction. It is expected that the Arts Center will open in Spring 2020. 

The mission of the Coppell Arts Center is to increase access to, and public awareness of the arts. Upon completion of construction, the Coppell Arts Center will feature a Main Stage Theater able to seat up to 444 audience members and provide 2,200 square feet of stage space, a Flexible Theater able to seat up to 195 audience members, a multi-purpose space of 2,000 square feet able to accommodate 100-165 community and arts organization members for rehearsals and meetings, and additional spaces to include art gallery space and studio space. 

The project is being funded through the Coppell Recreation Development Corporation (CRDC), a sales tax revenue fund that was established to undertake projects for youth and adult amateur athletics, entertainment and public gathering facilities, exhibition and museum facilities, parks and recreational facilities and more. Coppell voters re-authorized the CRDC’s use of sales tax revenue in the November 5, 2013 election.
