The Center for the Arts & Sciences
The Center for the Arts and Sciences is a unique venue on the Texas Gulf Coast offering arts, science, cultural and educational opportunities for residents and tourists.
The Center was founded in 1976, and it is the cultural, educational, and artistic home for an entire community of approximately 320,000 people. The Center has become a shining example of what is extraordinary about living and working in this unique location on the upper Texas Gulf Coast.
Owned and operated by the Brazosport Fine Arts Council, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, The Center is a venue that has the responsibility of providing performance and exhibit space, as well as marketing and ticket sales, for its permanent residents and partner groups, including the Freeport LNG Museum of Natural Science, BASF Planetarium, Brazosport Center Stages, Brazosport Art League, and Brazosport Symphony Orchestra.
All activities are volunteer-driven with only a modest-size staff to manage the daily challenges of running a multi-use cultural facility. Every actor, director, painter, teacher, naturalist, astronomer, and archeologist is a volunteer. The Center is an authentic community collaboration where new ideas are encouraged, teamwork is essential and budgets are carefully managed.
