Simpsonville Arts Center Renovation
The Simpsonville Arts Center will be transformed to set the stage for theatrical performances, art galleries, and community events. The renovation will start with an overhaul of the building’s auditorium space. The former Simpsonville Elementary School building renovations will include sliding panels over the auditorium’s windows, new seats and lighting, as well as a new lobby with a ticket window and concessions booth. The building will also get all new exterior windows and a new HVAC system as part of the first phase of the renovation project. “It’s a pretty stunning space — it’s just a matter of getting it in a usable form,” said City Administrator, Dianna Gracely. Phase 2 and 3 of the project will renovate the classroom wing and gym.
