Destined for downtown, MAP envisions: (i) renovating the Cossitt Library at Front and Monroe into an arts center for film, music, performing arts, and dance; (ii) replacing the neighboring parking garage with an art park atop an underground garage; and (iii) converting the adjacent fire station into a visual art center.
- create a community arts center and public art park on the river bluff;
- incubate, empower, and showcase our city’s emerging filmmakers, musicians, dancers, performing artists, visual artists, and other talents;
- serve as a collaborative forum for local artists, arts groups & entrepreneurs;
- congregate and connect on its “campus” a variety of arts-focused entities whose common mission is artist support and development;
- provide arts education and community outreach programs for children +
- offer a dynamic downtown destination to enjoy our city’s arts & culture.
