About The Center

Brazosport Center for the Arts and Sciences is the cultural home for an entire community of approximately 340,000 people. Established in 1976 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 Brazosport Art League, Brazosport Museum of Natural Science, BASF Planetarium, Brazosport Center Stages community theater and Brazosport Symphony Orchestra.

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 archaeologist is a volunteer. The Center for the Arts and Sciences is an authentic community collaboration where ideas are encouraged, talents are nurtured and opportunities for discovery are provided to every visitor and volunteer.
