The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities project began with the total demolition of the existing facility and rebuilding a new building nearly twice the size, all while keeping the center completely operational. This new 19,000-square-foot facility includes practice rooms, performance theaters, dance rooms, classrooms, banquet section, commercial kitchen with concession area, museum/gallery space, pottery studio and general office space.
The interior and exterior of the facility feature some amazing and beautiful art and sculpture work from artists around the country. From a serpentine “earth wall” to local artist and art student displays, the facility caters to all forms of artistic creativity.
The facility also includes an outdoor amphitheater with lawn seating as well as fixed seating. The orchestra pit can accommodate up to 30 musicians. Playful architecture, colors and angles characterize this post modern structure. The stagehouse is constructed of precast walls which stand 40-feet high, some of the tallest clearspan wall panels in Colorado.
