Arts Center

Southampton Arts Center has become a hub for arts and culture on the East End with almost 40,000 visitors, 6 exhibitions and over 200 events in 2017 alone.  The broad programming is delivered year-round through an impressive array of partners including New York Academy of Art, Hamptons International Film Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Telluride Mountain film, the Watermill Center, and many more. With the recent upgrade of the theater, including state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, lighting and new seating, Southampton Arts Center has expanded its breadth of programming to include first-run films, theatrical performances and concerts.

SAC’s mission is to serve our East End community as a hub for arts and culture while preserving the iconic building and grounds of 25 Jobs Lane for future generations.

Southampton Arts Center is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization.
