Austin Arts Center at Trinity College
Backstory and Context
The Austin Arts Center gained exposure the following year, when it hosted many performances, including opera and plays. Arnold Franchetti, a famous composer at the time, hosted his world premier of "As a Conductor Dreams" in 1966. This was a catalyst for the Austin Arts Center, as they have been hosting both external performances and performances by Trinity students for over fifty years. It is still frequently used on Trinity's campus and has even added classrooms surrounding the auditorium. The Liberal Arts College relies on the Austin Arts Center for classes such as acting, music, and art, which is made easy with the help of a building focused primarily on art.
