The Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation (SLCAF) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that exists to:
- Promote the cultural, performing, and visual arts in Sugar Land.
- Preserve, renovate, and restore historic Sugar Land Auditorium to the cultural arts center it once was in the community.
Founded in 1999, the SLCAF formalized a community grassroots effort to restore historic Sugar Land Auditorium. Built in 1918 by the Imperial Sugar Company, Sugar Land Auditorium is the oldest public building in Sugar Land. It once served as the site for all important community events, including graduations, plays, church services, dances, recitals, band concerts, and silent movies. The historic building is located adjacent to Lakeview Elementary School, at 226 Lakeview Drive, at the intersection of Lakeview Drive and Wood Street.
To-date, the interior of the 394-seat auditorium has been fully restored and upgraded with air conditioning and state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment. Phase 2 restoration included the repair and restoration of the exterior of the historic landmark, the construction of dressing rooms, a green room, storage areas and loading dock as well as restoring the historic rooftop balustrade.
Phase 3 includes patron restroom facilities, recreation of the historical covered pergola, and finishing touches on the interior of the building, as well as the exterior. The SLCAF is responsible for all fundraising efforts and oversees the restoration work and rental of Sugar Land Auditorium.
Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation celebrates and supports the unique voices of our community. Based on our belief in the unifying power of the arts, Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that create a climate of inclusion. We understand that all members of our community offer distinct life experiences, cultural backgrounds, ideas and interpretations. These diverse perspectives foster creativity, innovation, and economic growth.
Our leaders set our direction, goals and
strategies, and support nearly 500 team members
working in the City of Sugar Land.
