CORNELIUS, N.C. — Last month Mike Griffin and team members at the Griffin Brothers Companies were proud to participate in a kick-off demolition for the Cain Center of the Arts in Cornelius, North Carolina. Griffin Brothers Companies gifted the demolition to the Cain Center of the Arts and it is slated to take 90-120 days to complete.
The Cain Center for the Arts will be a direct result of a $4 million allocation that the Town of Cornelius set aside to revitalize the arts in the community. Demolition of the 1.85 acre site began on September 10th where top elected officials, including the mayors of Huntersville and Cornelius, County Commissioner Pat Cotham, NC Rep. Christy Clark and NC Sen. Natasha Marcus were in attendance.
As a result of the financial and cultural investment in Cornelius, the Cain Center of the Arts will breathe more life, creativity and business development into the community. “What we can learn about 2020 is that we need to find the good in things and come together as a community,” said Mike Griffin, Partner of Griffin Brothers Companies. “The world needs more dance, more music, more theatre, and we are proud to be a part of the Cain Center of the Arts that will do just that.”
As the region’s only public arts and community center, the Cain Center for the Arts will benefit the community for generations to come and the Griffin Brothers Companies is proud to be a part of this initiative. Once finished, the Cain Center for the Arts will include a 400-seat theater, gallery space, event space, three classrooms, a community green space and an outdoor plaza.
