What is this project?

The City of Fayetteville seeks to improve publicly owned land and create a dynamic Cultural Arts Corridor at the heart of the City. This corridor will link cultural institutions—including the Walton Arts Center, TheatreSquared’s new performing arts venue, Nadine Baum Studios, Fayetteville Public Library, and the University of Arkansas’ Art and Design District—and will activate the outdoor environment, the Fay Jones Woods,  between Dickson and Prairie Streets with amenities that will enhance the experience for city residents and visitors alike.  Learn more about the Cultural Arts Corridor and planning process here.
