Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities


Address: 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada, 80003

The City of Arvada passed a 3.6-million-dollar bond issue for a cultural center on May 21, 1974. The center was completed and dedicated on July 4, 1976. This facility housed a theater, art galleries, museum, class rooms, a ballet studio, and offices. In November 1992, the renovation for the new Arvada Center was dedicated. It included an amphitheater, dining room to accommodate 500 people, kitchen, enlarged display areas, additional office space and meeting rooms. It was named the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities because it denoted the use of this multi-faceted building.
