The building for the Middletown Arts Center was purchased in 1998 for the original purpose of being an indoor sports facility. The town of Middletown realized that sports related programs were so popular, while on the other hand, the arts had not one related program. The building received the vote from the town to turn the recently acquired property into a space for cultural and artistic activities. The location of the building is ideal. It is located in the middle of Middletown next to the train station making it easily accessible. In March 2007, the Middletown Arts Center opened its doors for the first time. The arts center is extremely beneficial to the community. It offers many classes including: Guitar Workshops, Audition and Acting Technique, Jazz workshop, Oil painting, Yoga, Sewing, Stained glass window making ,and more. The center also holds many events.
