Located in the downtown historic business district, the center houses not only the facilities for performing arts, but also the classrooms for instruction in the visual arts and gallery space. Our objective in the design of the Arts Center began with understanding its location and creating a building that fit the character of the downtown area without compromising the traditions of the citizens. The exterior materials are best characterized as civic – taking the cast stone elements that are common on federal buildings such as the post office and expressing them with the brick materials of the local government buildings. The rotunda element of the entrance also brings in the sense of unity and Individuality that are historically associated with the form.
