About The Center


The Brazosport Center for the Arts and Sciences, founded in 1976, is the cultural, educational, and artistic home for an entire community of approximately 320,000 people. Established as a result of the visioning and commitment of the region’s industrial and civic leadership, The Center has become a shining example of what is extraordinary about living and working in this unique location on the upper Texas Gulf Coast.

Owned and operated by the Brazosport Fine Arts Council, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, The Center is a facility that has the responsibility of providing performance and exhibit space to its permanent residents, including the Brazosport Museum of Natural Science, the Brazosport Planetarium, the Center Stages Theater, and affiliate organizations such as the Brazosport Symphony Orchestra and Symphony League.

All of the various activities are volunteer-driven with only a modest-size staff to manage the daily challenges of running a multi-use cultural facility. Every actor, director, painter, teacher, naturalist, astronomer, and archeologist is a volunteer. The Center for the Arts and Sciences is an authentic community collaboration where new ideas are encouraged, teamwork is essential, and budgets are closely managed.
