About Tifton Council for the Arts
Tifton Council for the Arts is located in South Georgia, approximately 2.5 hours South of Atlanta on I-75. TCA is housed in The Syd Blackmarr Arts Center (The Syd), a 120-year-old architectural treasure that was originally the Methodist Church. The building was the first brick church built in the community. It brought a refined elegance at the turn of the century to the growing rural town.
Today “The Syd” is operated by the Tifton Council for the Arts Board of Directors and Volunteer Guild. It serves as a cultural anchor for downtown Tifton and provides regular arts, education, and cultural programming to people of all ages and interests.
