Construction will officially begin on the new Marathon Center for the Performing Arts this week. A public groundbreaking ceremony will take place tomorrow at 11 a.m. The center is expected to open at the former Central Middle School site in the fall of 2015.
The arts center will cost around $10 million to build. Marathon Petroleum made a large donation to get the project up and running. The amount of the donation hasn’t been specified.
The old auditorium will be renovated to seat 1,000 people. The new part of the center will house classrooms, areas for performers to rehearse, an art gallery and a black box theater.by Read More →
