The historic church that has stood centrally for more than 100 years at the corner of Macon’s College and Oglethorpe Streets, experienced a renaissance to become the Tattnall Square Center for the Arts.
The Center serves as a community theatre and arts venue, as well as home to the University’s Theatre Department. Pews, carpet, and remnants of a 1960s remodel have been removed to make way for a new multi-purpose arts space. Sunday School classrooms have been transformed into state-of-the-art teaching studios, a scenic shop with a two-story loft, costume shop, storage, and faculty offices. The Center accommodates visual and performing arts lectures, film screenings, and workshops hosted by community arts organizations. The Tattnall Square Center is the first effort in our arts-rich community to create a space where performing arts, visual arts, education and film could all be presented in one space.
