The City of Tyler is excited to present plans for a new Arts and Innovation Center in Downtown Tyler! Please help make this project a reality by donating today.
The first four floors of the S.A. Lindsey Building at Elm Street and Broadway Avenue will be renovated into an arts and innovation center.
The S.A. Lindsey Building was gifted to the City of Tyler in 2010 by the R.W. Fair Foundation and the Fair Estate. It is located at 123 S. Broadway Ave. and is currently vacant. The structure has eight floors and more than 50,000 square feet of space.
Cost estimates, renderings and a phasing plan have been developed by Butler Architectural Group.
“We are anticipating that the primary funding source for the arts and innovation center will be from private donors,” said Bass. “The arts are very important to the City of Tyler citizens and they prove that time and time again through their contributions to such worthy causes as Liberty Hall, Gallery Main Street and now the Arts and Innovation Center.”
The Art Center Task Force has been co-chaired by Don Warren and Beth Whitney. Members include Dana Cargile, Traci Kenner, Mary Kay Lust, John Musselman, Jim Pendleton, Dr. Aubrey Sharpe, Jimmy Arber, Curtis Watson, Beverly Abell, Joyce Hudnall, and Michael Gonzales. Mike Butler and Jason Jennings from Butler Architectural Group have served as the consulting architects for the task force.
