Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities

Renovation & Addition

In the summer of 1992, the newly expanded Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities opened its doors. BRS developed a master plan and design that combined art and architecture, doubling the size of the original building and giving new form to the spaces within: the museum, gallery, banquet hall, theaters, dance studios, conference rooms, arts classrooms and outdoor amphitheater.

The Arvada Center has enjoyed a national reputation for its programs and performances. The renovation and addition brought renewed energy to the facility, which maintains its place as the city’s cultural scene.
