Arlington school leaders, students and community members celebrated the groundbreaking of the AISD’s new Fine Arts Center and Athletics Complex on Thursday morning. Both facilities will be built on property near Division and Collins in Arlington’s world-class Entertainment District, the former site of the Eastern Star Home.

The Fine Arts Center will serve the entire district, prekindergarten through 12th grade, will include a 1,250-seat concert hall, 450-seat theater, art and dance studios, classroom space, instrument repair center, and gallery space.

The Athletics Complex will include a natatorium and competition venues for basketball, volleyball and wrestling. This exciting project is part of the District’s Bond 2014 program.
