ASC ARTSx3 is the culmination of efforts by The Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas to expand community and art space in downtown Pine Bluff. By acquiring two buildings next door, they were able to expand their program three-fold (hence the "x3"), to provide additional services and cater to more art disciplines. What were once a firehouse, dairy creamery, and auto parts shop, The ARTSpace on Main and ART Works on Main are renovated buildings woven together, carved into, and modernized to provide dynamic spaces that respect their pasts while serving their new art disciplines. ARTSpace provides gallery, event, and workshop spaces, while ART Works' primary function is a 70-seat black box theater for small, community-oriented performances, and also contains five apartments with accompanying art studios.
