Construction began last week on the Performing Arts Pavilion at TwispWorks.
The outdoor performance facility was made possible by the support of an anonymous donor. The 1,000-square-foot pavilion will include movable acoustic walls and state-of-the-art lighting and audio capabilities.
“As part of TwispWorks mission to support economic vitality through arts and culture, the pavilion will be available to local arts organizations to deliver free programming to the community,” TwispWorks said in a press release.
Offerings could include musical, dance and theatrical performances as well as art exhibitions and special events.
The pavilion was initially conceived by the late Brice Butler. TwispWorks partner and architectural firm, Serious Fun Studio, designed the pavilion as a signature structure on the TwispWorks campus. The design is intended to visually tie the pavilion to the recent updates to campus including the new Old Schoolhouse Brewery and Taproom.
The pavilion is part of the Plaza@TwispWorks, a 14,000-square-foot outdoor space including pathways, a splash pad for kids to cool off, native plantings and a bike repair station.
