The $25 million arts complex, Midtown Art & Theatre Center Houston (MATCH) at the intersection of Main and Holman streets, nearly 60,000-square-foot facility brings together several performing and visual arts groups under one roof, creating a new hub for the arts in a vibrant part of Midtown.
What started a decade ago as a small idea for how Houston arts groups could share space and services has grown to become one of the most innovative collaborations in the nation’s arts scene.
MATCH is situated in what has become a hotbed of activity in recent years. Bryan Caswell’s Reef, Marcus Davis’ Breakfast Klub and the live music haven Continental Club have acted as anchors for the two-square-block enclave. The nearby Ensemble Theatre and the Ensemble/HCC rail stop also help draw traffic.
In addition to performance spaces, a gallery and a flexible use space, MATCH features administrative office space, classroom and rehearsal spaces, a large plaza facing Main Street, and eventually a coffee and wine bar.
