Sylvia Center for the Arts is a nonprofit, community-oriented performing arts center in Bellingham, Washington.


Sylvia Center offers affordable space for Whatcom County’s artists to rehearse, teach, and perform, and provides a central hub for arts audiences to discover and enjoy locally-created music, theater, dance, and more.

We opened our first foothold in our current location in 2016, and expanded in 2018 following a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised over $70,000 from nearly 600 backers.

Our facilities include: the Lucas Hicks Theater (our 125-seat Main Stage performance space); a 50-seat Studio Theater; the Prospect St Art Gallery (which serves as gallery, lobby, box office, and bar); and accessible restrooms, with plans for more amenities coming soon — see our spring 2021 GoFundMe page for more details on our immediate future plans!
