Performing Arts Center
The vision for a campus-based arts district of shared facilities and spaces undergirds Brown University’s long-term goals for cultivating creative expression among its community members. Integral to this vision is a new 80,000 square foot, centrally located Performing Arts Center that will support cross-departmental needs. Serving as a hub for music, dance, theater and multimedia arts, it will house a large, flexible performance space; a smaller performance and rehearsal space; back of house dressing rooms, green room, storage, control rooms, machinery pits and garages; a dance studio; an acting studio and rehearsal space; instrument studios; student practice rooms; plus offices for staff and visiting artists. The new performing arts center is slated for completion in 2021.
