Phase 1: Reconstruction Funding Complete
Community leaders, volunteers, and contributors raised $57,427 to match a $55,000 grant to the City of Huntsville by The Meadows Foundation for the future Wynne Home Arts Center. This means that all the funds needed for the reconstruction for adaptive re-use of the home as an arts center are now in place.
"We are very grateful to every individual and to the several foundations that have helped the City with the funding that will transform the home into a community arts center where family and youth opportunities and development will be the primary purpose of the center. Secondary uses will include providing a facility for community meetings, events, and celebrations."
Now that funding for the reconstruction is complete, we look forward to the completion of the Center. The Wynne Home Arts Center is anticipated to open in the fall with art exhibits and programming opportunities for all ages. Please watch for more news from the Wynne Home Arts Center.

Phase 2: Equipping the Wynne Home as an Arts Center
The 2nd phase of the project to equip the structure to function as an arts center is underway. Several pieces of furniture were donated by the Wynne Family and other individuals. Several pieces will be on loan from the Sam Houston Memorial Museum.
Watch this space for a list of items that are still needed for the arts center. Monetary contributions will be much appreciated and may be sent to:
