Arts Place, Inc. is the premiere community arts facility promoting and supporting the arts as an integral part of daily life in East Central Indiana and West Central Ohio. The unveiling of the 21,000 square foot, $2.9 million facility was celebrated in December 2000, and features a 285-seat state-of-the-art performing arts theatre with full backstage support, three art galleries, two spacious visual arts classrooms, six music studios, an arts park complete with a 3000-pound gas kiln and demonstration area, and several large works of public art by regional artists on the grounds.
Nestled in its beautiful park-like setting in downtown Portland, the facility features perennial favorites such as an annual Performing Arts Series, MusicWorks and CreativeWorks instructional programs, Goodrich Hall for large business meetings or catered functions; the Hugh N. Ronald Gallery featuring regional artists; and Arts in the Parks, a summer art program for children.
True to its mission, Arts Place offers vibrant programming that nurtures the creative spirit in everyone. Plan your visit today! Have a picnic stop in Arts Park, visit the Hugh N. Ronald Gallery, tour the facilities, attend performing arts events in Hall Moser Theatre…and much, much more!
