Mission

To identify, preserve and promote the community's cultural variety and wealth, and reclaim the community's historic role as a center for the arts. The Center stimulates the area's cultural and economic vitality by presenting and producing a combination of exhibits, programs and performances that span the entire range of the arts, involving both emerging and established visual and performing artists.

History

The Cultural Center was built in 1915 as the first City Hall. Renowned architect Ernest Ivey Cook designed the building in the neoclassical style. In 1987 the city government decided to move its offices to the former Tarpon Springs High School building, and plans were made to convert City Hall into a cultural center. The City of Tarpon Springs successfully renovated this important historic site, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
