Market Street Academy and Performing Arts Center, now located in the Brownsville Municipal Building, not only provides educational, economic, and cultural opportunities for area residents but also is one more stage of the long range goal to restore an historically valuable American river town. Our goal is to harness the talents and energies of the region’s ethnically and culturally diverse population to achieve new levels of excellence in every aspect of their heritage including art, literature, theatre, crafts, music, faith, and scholarship.
We opened in September of 2010 in the former Oddfellows’ Building in downtown Brownsville; however, this space soon became too small for our growing student body and faculty. In October 2012, we relocated to more spacious quarters in the Brownsville Municipal Building.
We strive to create a vibrant and growing arts center which will fulfill the prophecies of the past and dreams of the present to make Brownsville a major showcase not only for the arts, but also for a cultural heritage that draws from the very roots of America.
