The Academy Center of the Arts is greater Lynchburg's center for arts, culture, and community building. Our mission is to serve our community through arts education for both children and adults, gallery shows, and performances from nationally renowned performers, partner cultural non-profits, and our very own community members with a desire to perform. The Academy is also committed to making sure the arts are available to all our citizens despite economic restrictions.
Our facility includes a flexible black box theatre with programming year round, classes in the visual and performing arts, multiple galleries, a pottery studio, and very soon we will add a restored 750 seat historic theatre. The Academy has something for all ages and is here for local residents and visitors alike.
