Our Impact

Supporting the community

Center for the Arts plays a vital role in life in Jackson Hole.

The Center is so much more than a building — it’s an entire cultural ecosystem! We are home to 20 arts and education organizations, where dancers, ceramicists, musicians, actors, comedians, and painters unite to build community, and people of all ages learn and grow. Partnering with local and regional organizations, we are Jackson Hole’s place for connection and creativity.

Year after year, we activate The Center Campus with a wide variety of partnerships and community-focused events that aid in bringing cultural and artistic experiences to the entire community.

  • Teton County School District supports students by hosting the annual talent show on The Center stage, students participate and attend gallery openings and visit with Center-sponsored artists from across the region and world.
  • Jackson Hole Senior Center residents are provided with free tickets to National Theatre Live performances, funded by Center underwriting.
  • Board members, staff, and volunteers representing the area’s nonprofit organizations attend the Old Bill’s Award Ceremony.
  • Thousands of community members celebrate The Center during our second annual outdoor Center Benefit concert.

The Center is here because of you

Our community came together over 30 years ago to create a space that unites the arts and cultural programming in our valley. The Center is the outcome of that collective dream. It’s because of ongoing support that we are here today, hosting and programming events, and serving as a gathering space for the entire Jackson Hole community.

“I typically give when it relates to things that are time-oriented for my family…we’re here for so many things that I see what [The Center] gives me and enriches my family with, which is a great reason to give back in appreciation for what [The Center] gives us.”

“The Center is like Jackson’s other Town Square…it’s where everyone gathers. It’s the art, the theater, the music. It’s the heart and soul of the community.”

“Being a Resident at The Center is crucial to the vitality of Off Square Theatre Company. It has given us the stability to take creative risk, and it has allowed us to have a home to form a family within the local community.”
