Hardin Center for Cultural Arts, Mary G.

On the corner of Fifth and Broad Streets in historic downtown Gadsden sits an unusual building.  Its triangular shape and enormous cylinder have come to stand for the educational opportunities and endless entertainment the arts bring to a community.  The Hardin Center for Cultural Arts, under the direction of the Gadsden Cultural Arts Foundation, opened in 1990, and today more than 100,000 people visit the exhibits, performances and functions held at the Center each year.
