Centre for the Living Arts AL

The Centre for the Living Arts was established in 1999 to promote contemporary visual and performing arts in downtown Mobile. The mission of Centre for the Living Arts is to provide opportunities for the development of interest and participation in the visual and performing arts by the general public, and to create in the Mobile area opportunities for learning, practice and display of these disciplines. The Centre for the Living Arts operates the historic Saenger Theatre and Space 301, a contemporary art gallery. Erected in January of 1927, the stately, European-style Saenger Theatre is a historic landmark. Space 301 opened its doors in November of 2003 as a non-collecting gallery space dedicated to the practice, study, exhibition and enjoyment of contemporary visual art. Our educational and public programs aim to challenge the minds and spark the imaginations of our visitors.
