About the South Dallas Cultural Center Development
The South Dallas Cultural Center became a reality through the efforts of key individuals in the African-American community, who encouraged the City of Dallas to develop a multi-purpose arts facility in South Dallas. Under the leadership of City officials and Park Board members, funds were allocated through the 1982 bond program to construct a $1.5 million, 24,000 square-foot facility located across from Fair Park. In 2007, South Dallas Cultural Center's facility received a total renovation and expansion adding 10,000 square feet and featuring a 120-seat black box theater; a visual arts gallery; studios for dance; two-dimensional arts; fiber; media arts; printmaking; and photography. The Center also has a full service digital recording studio. The South Dallas Cultural Center is a division of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, a member of the Dallas Art Dealers Association and a partner in the National Performance Network.
