AcA is a wonderful venue for live music. The visual art exhibits are fantastic and exciting. If you are luck enough to catch it open on Art Walk you will not be disappointed with the vibrancy of the downtown life at the AcA.

At the heart of downtown Lafayette, a great place to experience an array of musical performances. Beautiful art exhibits, quaint coffee shop with seating area to chat before a show or during intermission. A lovely place!
