Located in historic Camden, SC, the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County (FAC) is a 501c3 nonprofit performing arts center serving Kershaw County as a cultural campus for entertainment, and education in the performing and visual arts.
Founded in 1974, when three independent groups, the Camden Art Association (now known as CamdenArt,) the Kershaw County Music Association (KCMA,) formerly known as the Camden Music Association [CMA] and the Camden Community Theatre came together to form the Fine Arts Center. Since that time, the FAC campus has grown into a full-service arts center with three main buildings: The Bassett Building, The Daniels Education Building, and the Douglas-Reed House.
• The Bassett Building houses the Bassett Gallery, Wood Auditorium and offices including the administration office for ticket purchases and class registration.
• The Daniels Education Building is the focal point of arts education classes at the center. There are spaces for music instruction, dance, visual art and a clay studio.
• The Douglas-Reed House (c. 1812) contains executive offices upstairs while the downstairs contains very attractive meeting or intimate event spaces, along with a full kitchen for catering.
Throughout the year, the FAC plays host to a variety of live performances in the 284-seat Wood Auditorium. The auditorium is furnished with computerized light and sound systems, as well as dressing rooms, a black box performance area, prop and set storage, and more. In any given year, performances may include:
• Live concerts featuring many musical genres including classical, rock, jazz, blues and more
• Professional Touring Theatre
• Community Theatre
• Teen and children’s theatre
• Dance Performances & Recitals
