New Lobby for the UIS Performing Arts Center
The new University of Illinois Springfield Performing Arts Center is bringing more than just a new name to UIS. A major facelift of the lobby area is also planned. According to Bryan Rives, new director of the UIS Performing Arts Services, the space will have "amenities patrons expect of a world-class performance facility." This includes a new grand staircase to the third-floor landing and a new ticket office.
Over the years, 72,000 visitors have come to the performance venues now encompassed in the UIS Performing Arts Center, adding to the performing arts available in Central Illinois. “It was time for a refresh and to celebrate all of the accomplishments our organization has had over the years," said Rives.
The Public Good: Because we are all on this journey together.
