Over the next few years, Walton Arts Center has plans for a multi-campus expansion that will mean more performing arts and special events in Northwest Arkansas. Walton Arts Center is underway with planning and fundraising efforts thanks to the Fayetteville A&P Commission who voted to authorize $600,000 in reserves toward the planning, designing and pre-construction of the Fayetteville facility. This is a significant investment, not only to Walton Arts Center but for the future development of the region. To learn more about the expansion, visit www.waltonartscenter.org/futureplans.aspx
