Help Raise the Curtain for the Performing Arts

94% Campaign Progress toward $8.1 million goal.

Since 1956, Tyler Junior College’s Wise Auditorium has been a landmark for performing arts in East Texas.

Generations of East Texans have experienced the thrill of watching live music, theater and dance while others have discovered their love of performance including successful and talented TJC alumni stage and screen actress and singer Donna Bullock and movie and tv actor Shea Whigham, as well as Grammy-winning Christian singer-songwriter Chris Tomlin and Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriter Will Jennings.

It’s almost time, to Raise the Curtain on the next era of the arts in Tyler. The new heart of the TJC Cultural Arts District transforms the auditorium and surrounding space into the exquisite Rogers Palmer Performing Arts Center.

Be a part of Raise the Curtain and ensure that the Rogers Palmer Performing Arts Center continues to serve as a training ground for our stars of the future and as a vital resource for the arts at TJC and throughout the East Texas region for generations to come. 

Show your support by giving today.
