Background:
SECCA opened in 1956 as a non-profit, non-collecting visual arts organization in Winston-Salem, NC, in response to a community and regional need for exhibition space devoted to work by area artists. By 1972, when industrialist James G. Hanes willed his 32-acre estate to the gallery, its scope included all 11 southeastern states. Today, SECCA brings the best examples of art of our time to the public, no matter where they are discovered.

Facility History:
The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art is located at the historic estate of James G. Hanes. Mr. Hanes (1886-1972) was a progressive industrialist and the president and chairman of the board of Hanes Hosiery Mills Company, the forerunner of Hanes Corporation. In his will, Mr. Hanes bequeathed his home and grounds for the “exhibition of art in a homelike setting.” The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, which was founded in 1956, moved from Old Salem to the Hanes home and re-opened to the public in 1977. The Hanes estate was designed by Peabody, Wilson and Brown and was completed in 1929. The grounds of the 20 acre estate were designed by West Virginia landscape architect Books Wigginton.

Two galleries were added to the home in 1976 and 1990. The 1976 addition included a 8,896 square foot gallery and receiving area. In 1990, a 24,500 square foot addition was completed containing a 300-seat community auditorium.
