Cultural Arts Center

The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center (CAC) is a hub for the arts in Tuscaloosa, managed and maintained by The Arts Council. The CAC houses the Alabama Power Grand Hall, perfect for weddings and private event rentals, and The Rotary Club of Tuscaloosa Black Box Theatre which provides a location for performances in an intimate setting for family programming and educational opportunities. The University of Alabama rents a gallery space and The Arts Council maintains a gallery within the CAC. The facility also houses offices for the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra and Tuscaloosa Community Dancers.

This exciting space is open and bringing the arts and cultural community together in downtown Tuscaloosa.  Please consider making a gift today to the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. 

"What a difference a day makes, and the difference is you." Just like Dinah Washington's famous song lyrics, this project needs you to make this a reality. 

For more information on how you can become a partner in this exciting project, please contact Sandra Wolfe at (205) 758-4994 ext.3.

Thank you for doing your part to bring the arts together in our community!

Above is the architectual rendering for the first floor of the CAC which will be located in the former Allen Jemison building on the corner of 7th Street and Greensboro Avenue on the same block as the Bama Theatre. The City of Tuscaloosa has done their part by securing a $1.5 million HUD grant to bring the building up to code but that is just the beginning. The Arts Council will be raising approximately $1.2 million to restore the building and create the first floor space.
