About Us

The NACC preserves our historic campus by providing creative space & arts/cultural experiences for WNY residents and visitors.

Our community-focused cultural center is a 501c3 non-profit organization that houses more than 100 artists – including  painters, sculptors, ceramicists, educators, woodworkers, photographers, theater companies, dance  companies and more – in studios and programmable spaces. We support artists with collaborative practices,  professional careers, and those interested in contributing to WNY’s creative ecosystem across 180,000 sq ft, including 3 theatres, 2 public and numerous private galleries, a radio station, public classroom space, the Starry Night Café, and the NACC gift shop.

If you have an idea for our spaces, contact us today.
