The Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston will be Houston’s exciting new destination for performing and visual arts. Located at Main and Holman in Midtown, the MATCH will be a home for a broad spectrum of Houston’s leading and emerging arts organizations and will transform midtown into a vibrant new destination.
The mission of the MATCH is to provide a home for a broad spectrum of Houston’s arts organizations, and create an accessible destination that will bring Houstonians together to enjoy art and enliven a neighborhood.
A self-sustaining operating plan for the MATCH is in progress. Earned revenues will come from rent and public funding streams. HOT tax through Houston First and 380 agreements are being negotiated with the City of Houston. Operating fundraising will not be necessary after the facility is constructed.
Having this facility available to small to medium arts organizations is really going to make them grow and prosper.
The Match is about bringing creativity and fabulous architecture together, in a place that will draw people to it. It will begin to bleed out into the neighborhood.
The Match is going to make a statement about what Houston finds important in terms of cultural life and make us a destination [for the arts].
