The Wyoming Fine Arts Center is located in the historic downtown district of Wyoming, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. The building is a beautifully restored 1850s home that once served as the Wyoming Masonic Lodge for much of the 20th century.

In the 1990s, local businessman Paul Bartel purchased the lodge with a vision of creating a community arts center. After renovations to the building were completed in 1995, he opened as the Cincinnati String Academy (CSA).  In 2000, CSA was renamed to the Wyoming Fine Arts Center when a full repertoire of fine arts programming was added. 

Since our founding, The Center has become one of the Cincinnati region’s premier community art centers.  Our Mission is to educate, create experiences, and nurture appreciation in music and other creative and performing arts across all ages, races, abilities and backgrounds. We do this through excellence in teaching, creative programming, interdisciplinary experiences, community partnerships and engagement.

We offer more programs to more students than virtually any other group in the Greater Cincinnati area. We believe our personal approach to each student’s success and the quality of our faculty, sets us apart.

You can support The Wyoming Fine Arts Center by donating our General Fund!  Every donation, no matter how great or small, helps us continue to serve the Greater Cincinnati community with high quality arts education and joyful experiences in the arts for generations to come.
