SOUTHAMPTON ARTS CENTER, located at 25 Jobs Lane in the heart of Southampton Village, provides a dynamic venue to present the highest quality programming to our entire community through partnerships with a diverse slate of world-class artists, performers, educators and cultural institutions. Southampton Arts Center is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization.

We deliver a diverse slate of cultural programming, including visual artsfilmlive performances, talks and children’s activities. Offering something for everyone,  we’ve been joined by thousands of visitors, both indoors and outdoors on our beautiful grounds.

Acting as stewards of one of the most iconic and beloved buildings in the Hamptons, our primary mission is to restore and renovate this historic landmark for future generations while serving as a hub to strengthen arts and culture for our entire community. Plans are currently underway with world-renowned architecture firm Machado & Silvetti for a complete renovation and adaptive reuse of this historic property – bringing a piece of Southampton’s unique history into the modern era.

Michele Thompson joined us earlier this year as our first Director (see announcement).

We’ve just gotten started and welcome your suggestions and feedback to make Southampton Arts Center a great place for the whole community.
