Jay and Tara Tatum bought the Brooklyn Arts Center events business in 2018, closing on their purchase of the downtown Wilmington venue itself in August 2020.
Although COVID-19 halted or shrank events at the BAC for several months beginning in March 2020, the center’s activity started getting back to normal as guidelines put in place to halt the spread of the virus were relaxed.
BAC hosts numerous types of events, including concerts and community events, but weddings are a mainstay, and COVID-19 led many to be rescheduled. Sometimes the BAC has two separate weddings going on at the same time.
Jay Tatum said, “We moved about 50 brides from 2020 to 2021.”
