In 2013, Cornelius residents approved a $4 million bond project for downtown redevelopment, and funds were used to purchase 1.85 acres adjacent to the police station in downtown Cornelius for the future arts center. In 2017, Cornelius Arts Center was established as a 501(c)3, Dionne was hired as executive director, and two architectural firms were named to execute the center’s vision.

As plans develop and the project moves forward, the Art Center continues to build positive awareness and momentum for the facility, which will bring professional dance, theater and visual arts to Northern Mecklenburg and Lake Norman residents.
