STAGING THE FUTURE
Conveniently located at 1800 Alma Drive in Plano across from Academy High School, the Robbie & Lynore Fine Arts Center can accommodate the more than 325 performances, rehearsals, and events scheduled each year through Plano ISD’s fine arts program, allowing an unrivaled experience for students in the district.
Additionally, the Center will be available for public and corporate use, including trainings, conferences, receptions, and other events, making this facility a significant asset not only to Plano ISD, but the entire Plano community.
While the citizens of Plano generously approved the bond that funded the design and construction of the Robbie & Lynore Robinson Fine Arts Center, the annual programming and operating costs of the facility are significant. These costs include staffing and programming support, utilities, general operations, and maintenance - none of which eligible for the bond funding under Texas law.
For this reason, the Plano ISD Education Foundation has launched a $3.2 million endowment campaign called Staging the Future, which will ensure the long-term financial stability of the Robbie & Lynore Fine Arts Center and establish it as an ever-present resource for Plano ISD students and the Plano community.
For more information or to set up a tour, please email RFAC@pisd.edu.
Together with the Plano ISD Education Foundation, Plano ISD, and the Staging the Future Endowment committee, YOU can ensure the vitality of fine arts in Plano by becoming a Founding Patron.
The Staging the Future endowment committee is chaired by Missy Bender, former Plano ISD Board of Trustees President and Director of Advocacy and Outreach for Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation who believes
"Fine arts is a valuable element of the educational experience in Plano ISD. It provides a place for every student to learn creativity, diligence, patience, expression, teamwork, and a place to belong. It did it for me when I was a student in Plano ISD, and it did the same for my daughter. The Robbie and Lynore Robinson Fine Arts Center represents the high value that Plano ISD and the community place upon the artistic expression of Plano ISD students and its community members while serving as a space in which to explore new ideas and come together as neighbors."
