A “YES” vote on the Let’s Go Hollywood General Obligation Bond Supports New Cultural Facilities at the Center
The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood is thrilled that its multi-disciplinary arts education initiative Arts Ignite! is among the improvement projects selected for the Let’s GO Hollywood General Obligation Bond (GO-Bond).
Through a successful GO-Bond Referendum, the City of Hollywood, in collaboration with the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, will expand the Center’s campus by constructing education, gallery and performance spaces adjacent to the historic, city-owned Kagey Home facility, located at 1650 Harrison Street. These facilities, which will be built and owned by the City of Hollywood, will enable the Center to further serve the community with new and innovative programs in the visual and performing arts.
A “YES” vote means:
- New classes for adults and children in dance, music, drama, yoga, visual arts and video/sound production
- More films, live music, theater, artist talks, and special events in a new Studio Arts Theater
- An Outdoor Courtyard for performances and creative play
- A new Interactive Gallery to grow your creative side
The addition of art and culture buildings would preserve the historic Kagey Home.
“The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood welcomes this incredible opportunity to share our vision with Hollywood residents to expand and modernize our facilities,” said Joy Satterlee, the Center’s Executive Director. “Through a successful GO Bond Referendum, the Center would offer a much wider array of adult and children’s programs, while also providing a multi-faceted social and creative hub in Downtown Hollywood.”
A “YES” vote means cultural enrichment for more individuals and families, a greater sense of community, and attracting more visitors to support Hollywood businesses. Projects selected for the GO Bond were based on input from the community and assessment of city-wide needs.
“The Center has reached its capacity in terms of providing youth education programs for Hollywood residents in our current facilities, and we are turning children and families away as a result,” Satterlee added. “By expanding our downtown campus, the Center will also greatly increase its programming for adults in such art-and-culture disciplines as dance, live music and performance, film screenings, and talks by high-profile artists and cultural leaders.”
