Cobb Galleria Centre, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and ArtsBridge Foundation recently released their joint 2022 annual report, celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The venues produced a total of 365 events and performances with attendance of 409,000 in 2022.

„The performing arts centre has accomplished its ambitious goal of bringing arts and entertainment events“
Michele Swann, general manager
ArtsBridge Foundation, the arts education outreach arm of the Cobb Energy Centre, returned to in-person field trips, master classes, educational experiences, and the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards – Shuler Hensley Awards. In 2022, Cobb Galleria Centre and Cobb Energy Centre created 1,510 jobs and generated approximately $165 million in overall economic impact for Cobb County and the State of Georgia, based on an economic impact study performed by an independent consulting firm. Approximately $7.5 million in sales, income, local option, hotel/motel and liquor by the drink taxes are directly attributable to events held at the Cobb Galleria Centre and Cobb Energy Centre. "The performing arts centre has accomplished its ambitious goal of bringing arts and entertainment events that wouldn't otherwise be presented to local audiences and lifting up its resident companies—the Atlanta Ballet, The Atlanta Opera and ArtsBridge Foundation," said Michele Swann, general manager and CEO of the authority.
