The proposed Asheville Performing Arts Center has received another grant — this time for $1 million from the Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation.
The Center’s estimated cost is between $65 million and $85 million, depending on the place of construction. This grant will more than likely be used for further planning.
At this time, the Performing Arts Center has more than 200 contributors who have pledged up to three million dollars. The Center would replace the older Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, the current main venue for large concerts and events.
