Cultural Arts Corridor

What is this project?

The City of Fayetteville seeks to improve publicly owned land and create a dynamic Cultural Arts Corridor at the heart of the City. This corridor will link cultural institutions—including the Walton Arts Center, TheatreSquared’s new performing arts venue, Community Creative Center, Fayetteville Public Library, and the University of Arkansas’s Art and Design District—and will activate the outdoor environment, the Fay Jones Woods,  between Dickson and Prairie Streets with amenities that will enhance the experience for city residents and visitors alike.  Learn more about the Cultural Arts Corridor Master Plan and planning process here.

The project will be constructed in two phases. Phase One construction will include improvements to the Fay Jones Woods to SITES certification standards, West Avenue Streetscapes and connections, and improvements to the Razorback Greenway where it parallels the Corridor.
