ACAC is moving

Posted By on Fri, Aug 27, 2010 at 1:57 PM


Chad McGriff, the new executive director of ACAC (Arkansas Community Arts Cooperative), has announced that the performance/visual arts space is moving to 608 Main, across from RAO Video and the Arkansas Repertory Theater.
McGriff said the non-profit is leasing the space, which will feature a gallery on the ground floor. The basement will eventually be converted to studio space and McGriff will live on the top floor.

Clean-up of the building, which is 80 feet long and 24 feet wide, will start next week, and ACAC is looking for volunteer help.

The first big event in the new ACAC, which has been at 900 S. Rodney Parham Road for a year, will be a fund-raiser dinner with Graham Gordy, Lawrence Hamilton, Korto, Emily Galusha, Jamie Davidson and other local celebrities. Details are being firmed up now for the Sept. 23 event.
