The Academy Center of the Arts is Virginia Region 2000’s center for arts, culture, and community building.

The Academy provides a highly valuable corporate sponsorship program for businesses wishing to align their brand with our mission of serving the community through arts and culture, in addition to increasing the marketing reach and visibility of our sponsors with new and existing customers. In spite of the challenges we faced in 2021 due to the pandemic, the Academy successfully brought patrons safely into our spaces while extending our community outreach through new initiatives such as the Academy in Motion mobile arts program as well as the continuation of virtual programming. The Academy engaged close to 40,000 guests through stage events, arts education, facilities rentals, community outreach and gallery exhibits in 2021.

We additionally reached over 22,000 through virtual engagement. The organization itself had a total financial impact of close to $3 million in our community and we continue to make a great financial impact on the Greater Lynchburg region as our annual budget returns to pre-pandemic levels. Through our corporate sponsorship offerings, your business will be strategically placed in front of the eyes of all venue guests over the course of the 2023 year, reaching 25,000 weekly through eblasts, 47,000 quarterly through our mailed playbill, 180,000 annually through our website, and countless eyes through our social media, on-site, digital, and print advertising methods.
