Fayetteville Underground sent out a notice that the artistic venue will be looking for a new place after more than two years at the East Square Plaza building in downtown Fayetteville.

From the Underground’s news release:

“Fayetteville Underground, voted Fayetteville’s premier venue for the visual arts, will soon be undertaking the next phase of its development. Having occupied the basement level of the downtown square’s East Square Plaza building for more than two years, the Fayetteville Underground will soon be seeking a new home.

In light of ongoing development plans and efforts to repurpose parts of the East Square Plaza building, the Fayetteville Underground’s lease will not be renewed at the end of its current term, which expires January 15, 2012.

The Underground’s board of directors and artists wish to extend their thanks to building owners Ted and Leslie Belden for their invaluable support over the past three years.
“First and foremost, we wish to express our sincere thanks and deep gratitude to the Beldens,” says board president Steve Aust. “They have been our lead benefactors since inception, and the Fayetteville Underground’s impressive successes to date are due in large part to their generosity.”
The Underground will now be seeking a new location and welcomes any support that the community has to offer.
More details regarding the search for a new location will be released in due course, as additional information is available.”
