The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center today announced a new sponsorship with PNC. This sponsorship includes the rebuilding and renaming of the Center’s Members Lounge, and is PNC’s first major arts sponsorship in the DFW area.
“Having partners like PNC is critical to achieving the mission of the Center, and providing us with the resources to serve our community,” said Doug Curtis, president and CEO of AT&T Performing Arts Center. “This sponsorship will help us expand our community engagement and education programs, which provide thousands of students and families with access to the arts each year.”
“AT&T Performing Arts Center is one of the great cultural resources for this city,” said Randy Wilhoit, PNC regional president for Dallas – Ft. Worth. “At PNC, we recognize that access to quality arts experiences enriches lives and builds stronger and more vibrant communities, which ultimately helps drive business and economic development.”
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings applauded the sponsorship. He launched the Business/Arts initiative in 2012 and has long been a champion of partnerships between the business community and arts organizations.
“Dallas has a vibrant corporate community and a thriving arts community,” said Mayor Rawlings. “I’ve always felt, when you put the two of them together, incredible things can happen for our great city.”
The rebranding of the Members Lounge in the Winspear Opera House will be unveiled at an event before the Lyle Lovett concert on August 28. Details will be announced later this month.
