On February 10, 2020, the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas (ASC) held a wall breaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction on The ARTSpace on Main.

Dr. Rachel Miller, Executive Director, Arts & Science Center of SE Arkansas peeks through the hole left from wielding a sledge hammer and breaking through the first wall.

Located at 623 S. Main St. in Pine Bluff, The ARTSpace will be housed in a newly renovated historic building next to it’s primary location at 701 S. Main St.

The exciting new facility will feature a gallery for area artists to show and sell work. There will also be a space for art and dance classes, a maker-space, a pottery studio, and an outside “ART Yard” for projects and events.

The much anticipated project is scheduled for completion in August of 2020 and will be another great milestone in the revitalization of Pine Bluff.
