New arts center in Cordele

July 23, 2003

Cordele-- The arts have a new home in Cordele.

This is the site of the half million dollar Crisp Community Arts Center. Right now, the Arts Alliance is operating in cramped quarters--but is still managing to serve more than 15,000 people every year with arts and education programs.

Director Dianne Langston says, "We are going to have 4,600 square feet of space which is about ten times more than we have now. We will have offices, a gallery, a small performance space and most importantly we will have a large area for classes and workshops."

The Arts Alliance is in it's ninth year and has more than tripled in growth. The Arts Center will open next summer.
