The Four Rivers Cultural Center opened on May 31, 1997, with 85,000 square feet of space. The Cultural Center houses a 535-seated theater, 13,000 square foot museum, 1.3 acre Japanese garden, rotating art and exhibit gallery, a gift shop, and conference/venue rooms.
Our mission and belief is that every individual should have access to the transforming power of art, culture, community, education, and history for a more vibrant community, because of that belief, we provide experiences at the lowest cost or free. Bringing people to learn from one another and challenge the idea that our differences separate us. We do this through four tenets of our programming; Inspire, Preserve, Serve and Inform.
INSPIRE: Through an ethnically diverse presentation of arts, inspire & involve our community in transcending formed opinions, finding hope and meaning, and experiencing rich cultural expression.
PRESERVE: Hold and tell the stories of the heritage(s) that shaped and are shaping our region and nation. Events will invite community members to participate in authentic stories of heritage & history and celebrate the important contributions each group has made.
SERVE: To intentionally use our space, skills, programming, and relationships to tackle inequities in our community. Creating growth, education and empowerment for all peoples. Seeking collaboration for the highest good of who we serve.
INFORM: To provide free quality educational opportunities to the community and schools, filling the gap in special learning experiences in art, history, and diversity. Present a wide array of forums and information creating connections with and for our community so they can engage in new viewpoints.
Whether through our programming or by being an affordable gathering place we continually strive to bring our community together to celebrate and enrich lives. The Cultural Center offers a broad range of programs including music, theatre, dance, humanities, civic discourse, educational and local and world culture events for youth, students, families and adults in the Four Rivers region and surrounding communities.
