UTPA Academic & Performing Arts Center— The UTPA  Fine Arts Academic and Performance Center, scheduled for completion by October, 2014, will replace the aging Fine Arts Auditorium and Annex. It will have a long range positive benefits that will extend far beyond the campus as it plays a major role in the continued socioeconomic growth of Edinburg. The Fine Arts Center will be incorporated with our West McIntyre Street — a beautiful pedestrian-friendly, environmentally-enhanced corridor that will help existing businesses and attract new shops and venues serve thousands of residents and visitors. The state-of-the-art, 60,000 sq ft complex will be key in the Edinburg EDC’s continued support for the renovation of our Downtown District.
