The Prizery, already a center for community activities, began its renovation in 2002. The 38,000 square foot building includes a welcome center, a performing arts theatre, an art gallery, classrooms and a large space for community functions.
The renovation was accomplished while keeping the look and openness of the building intact. As a centerpiece of the historic warehouse district in downtown South Boston, The Prizery is a magnet for tourism and provides performing and exhibiting space. Its location next door to the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center makes its facilities a natural extension for the colleges.
The mission of the Community Arts Center Foundation, also known as The Prizery, is to enhance the quality of life for the people it reaches through arts and cultural experiences that inspire, educate, and entertain.
