About the Yadkin Arts Council
The Yadkin Arts Council and Cultural Arts Center’s mission is to enrich the lives of every citizen of Yadkin County through a broad variety of arts programs that touch, inspire, and involve creative spirits of all ages and all backgrounds. We believe art is transformational. Arts open minds, frees imagination, and helps people see the world from different perspectives.

It encompasses the Welborn Gallery, the Willingham Theater, the Center Bistro, classrooms and meeting rooms, staff offices and working artist studios. The Yadkin Arts Council website at yadkinarts.org provides up-to-date information about existing and upcoming exhibits, events and programs and offers forms and rules for artists wishing to submit artwork for future exhibits and juried shows.
About the Willingham Theater
The Willingham Theater hosted its first performance in December 2012, just two short years after the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center opened its doors to the citizens of Yadkin County. While many might dismiss the power of a small city theater, we like to prove that we can indeed bring the big city excitement and experience to our small town. Our state-of-the-art theater seats 193 patrons and showcases a variety of engaging performances ranging from music, dance, drama, comedy, and even film. In addition to ample seating, the Willingham Theater has a remarkable state-of-the-art-technology. The Willingham Theater is owned and operated by the Yadkin Arts Council.
