Over the past year we’ve told you about new apartments and businesses coming to Jackson.
And now more arts and entertainment will soon be making its way downtown.
6 News has the details on this big move for the Jackson School of the Arts.
It’s been vacant for three years.
But the old Masonic Temple Building on Courtland Street will soon be home to art, theater, and dance as the school of the arts moves into the heart of downtown Jackson.
The school has been thriving at its current location for ten years.
But it now needs to create more space.
“Every year, we’ve increased enrollment to the point where we’ve having wait lists. That’s the last thing we want. Our mission is that all children can participate in the arts,” said Executive Director Kim Curtis.
The non-profit just announced plans to move from the Art 634 Building to the former Masonic Temple in downtown Jackson.
