About Us

The Corinth Area Arts Council, Inc. is a non-profit community service organization with the main goal of restoring and managing the Coliseum Civic Center as a Civic and Performing Arts Center for Corinth and Alcorn County and surrounding communities. The Corinth Area Arts Council first met in October 1980 and was organized under the auspices of the Arts and Cultural Committee of the Corinth-Alcorn Area Chamber of Commerce, now known as the Alliance.

The Council has focused in recent years on building management and improvements along with occasional program sponsorships such as an annual fund-raiser performance by local artists and the duo piano concert, “Pas de Duo” with support from The Benjamin and Corinne Pierce Foundation in 2009. However, things are changing!
