The Arts Center Task Force is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to building a performing arts center in the Mid-Columbia. The non-profit corporation, formed in 1993, has been active during several periods of time when significant opportunities were presented. The Performing Arts Center would serve as a mid-size regional community theater and display arts facility. Previously, the Task Force responded to a request for proposal from the Tri-Cities Regional Public Facilities Board, investing in a market study showing the potential of a performing arts center in the region. While the Proposal was not put forward to the voters, the need and market for a large-size performing arts center continues to be viable.
