Studies have shown the timing for a contemporary center is now. The creative spirit of the region continues to excel alongside the dynamic growth in business and residents in Southwest Washington. The obvious need for a center for the arts that serves this community has taken on its own voice with leadership understanding the limited options for attending performances locally. Turning away business opportunities that could serve the community’s economic interests is simply not an option. Congested freeways and limited parking encourage residents to stay local and seek out new experiences in the area. A center will ease traffic stress and provide a much-needed destination for the residents and visitors to the area.
