Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities

Did you know that since opening its doors in 1976, the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities has become one of the largest multidisciplinary arts organizations in the nation?

The Arvada Center has earned the reputation for high-quality theater productions and educational programming. Well known by many local residents for its theater and music productions, classes, art galleries and historical museum, the Arvada Center is a mainstay for residents and surrounding communities as well. The variety of programming at the Center offers something for everyone!

The multi-disciplinary approach of the Arvada Center allows for integrated programs, giving the Center a truly unique offering to its more than 350,000 visitors each year. These visitors include adult and children theater patrons, art and history enthusiasts, students of ceramics, dance, writing, acting, visual arts and more. This wide array of arts and humanities under one roof is what makes the Arvada Center a true treasure.

The Arvada Center plans to stay the course. Even in rough economic times, people are still willing to spend money on theater and the arts. By providing patrons with shows, classes and exhibitions they want, at an affordable price, with excellent customer service, the Center is positioned for another stellar year.

The Arvada Center also prides itself on its award-winning educational programs. Learning and personal growth are key to the mission of the Arvada Center. Research shows that children given an education rich in the arts have better grade point averages in core academic subjects, score better on standardized tests, and have lower drop-out rates than students without an arts education.

As the Arvada Center positions itself at the forefront of cultural organizations in the Denver Metro area, it acknowledges this can only happen through the support of charitable donations and the unwavering commitment of volunteers. It is with the generous support of these individuals, families and corporations, that the Arvada Center has been able to remain a cultural resource and a beacon of excellence to the community, the state and the nation.
