“We are fortunate that the leaders in Sheridan County recognize the role that the arts play in our world today.
The arts are an integral part of understanding other cultures and traditions, of interpreting the past, and exploring the future.”
Dr. Paul Young, Sheridan College President

Officially opened in 2016 through a generous contribution from Whitney Benefits, the WCA was conceived to provide Sheridan College with much-needed space for its fine and performing arts programs. Its 422-seat concert hall, the largest in the region, features a changeable proscenium stage, motorized fly system, and a hydraulically convertible orchestra pit.
The musical classroom space in the WCA features a large band room, a choral room, a piano classroom, multiple practice rooms, a recording studio, a music theory classroom, faculty offices, and storage.
As home to the SC Art Program, the WCA is one of the most advanced, innovative art education centers in the United States. Art learning spaces focus on cross-disciplinary opportunities for students studying ceramics, painting and drawing, sculpture, printmaking and digital media. Two gallery spaces showcase work from students, faculty and traveling shows from top artists around the world.
