The mission of the Boulder Center for the Performing Arts is to build a multi-use facility that will establish the cultural cornerstone for downtown Boulder. The Center will be accessible to local performing artists and community organizations, and large enough to attract professional performance groups touring the nation.

The Boulder Center’s vision is to:

  • Create a venue that will celebrate state-of-the-art technology, acoustical excellence and the full panoply of performing arts, entertainment and educational opportunities for our diverse community
  • Make the finest regional and national performances accessible to Boulder
  • Serve as a meeting space for Boulder’s wide range of business, entrepreneur, education, non-profit and community service organizations
  • Contribute to the vitality, quality of life and attractiveness of our community for citizens, visitors and prospective employers and employees
  • Complement the municipal campus with the Pearl Street Mall to the north and the University to the south
  • Create a central public gathering place, connecting people from all walks of life through the passionate pursuit of the arts and intellectual enterprise
  • Enhance the economic vitality of Downtown Boulder

“The Center will provide the setting for extraordinary cultural, academic, business, celebratory, and ceremonial experiences, where the arts come to life for current and future generations.”
– Judy Reid, President, Boulder Center Board
