The AcA is located in the heart of Downtown Lafayette and functions as a cultural anchor for Acadiana. With over 38 years experience with outreach, arts funding and education, AcA serves an eight-parish region with community development, education performances and exhibits.
A facility of great architectural beauty, AcA hosts meuseum-quality gallery spaces and the world-class James Devin Moncus Theater, as well as workshop and performance spaces for arts and cultural education.
Service to the community at large, to our artists and constituents is at the very core of our mission, both to bring a sense of identity to this region and to introduce our area to cutting edge trends in the arts from across the world. In addition, we often facilitate and support the operations of other non-profit arts organizations and have longstanding history of implementation, support and collaboration. AcA takes great pride in its mission of fostering art and culture in Acadiana.
