Walton Arts Center Prepares for Grand Reopening Celebration

Walton Arts Center Prepares for Grand Reopening Celebration

The Walton Arts Center is almost ready to unveil their new space to the public! This $23 million renovation plan has been a large project extending the facility by adding an extra 30,000 square feet, modifying some of the theaters, upgrading backstage spaces and giving the outside of the building a more modern feel. These additions will greatly enhance the theater experience here in Fayetteville as the Walton Art Center remains an anchor in the downtown entertainment district.

The grand opening celebration will take place on November 19 with a series of events that are free and open to the public.

Beginning at 9:50a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony, The Walton Arts Center will open its doors for audiences to explore their new space. Light snacks and drinks will be available as well as the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” to see the interworking of the theater spaces. Several musical performances will extend the celebration into the evening hours.

The Family Open House: “Behind the Curtain” event will take place Saturday Nov. 19 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. This will feature live performances, photo opportunities on stage, an interactive arts activity, art installation and gallery viewings, guided tours, and more!

The Evening Celebration: “Encore” will take place the evening of Saturday Nov. 19 beginning at 6:00p.m. This event, geared towards older audiences, will offer drinks & hors d’oeuvres, a lighting ceremony (at 5:45p.m.), and a variety of musical performances by :SoNA (Symphony of Northwest Arkansas), Mucca Pazza, DeltaCapella, The Silvershakers, The Fayetteville Jazz Collective, and Champian Fulton.
