The vision for the Cain Center for the Arts began in 2017, as community members saw a need for improved access to the arts and culture in the Lake Norman region. The Cain Center aims to provide theater, classroom, and other community spaces to empower community members to experience and enjoy the art right here in the Lake Norman area.

Upon completion, the Cain Center will โ€œinclude a 400-seat theater, gallery space, event spaces, three classrooms, a community green space, and an outdoor plaza,โ€ according to their latest press release. Most recently, they published designs for the theater and gallery; however, they previously announced classroom, lobby, and outdoor renderings in May of 2020.

I am a Cornelius local and student at UNC Chapel Hill pursuing a degree in Business. In my time at home in OTC, I love to explore the local flair of OTC art and music, enjoy some sun on LKN, and walk my pug, Holly, along the greenway.
