Arts United Center
Fort Wayne IN 46802
The inspiration for the building was a violin and its case — an instrument which creates beautiful music enclosed by a protective shell. Indeed, at the core of the Arts United Center is a 660 seat theatre, and surrounding that theatre is an outer brick shell containing the entry ways, promenades, ticketing and other facilities of a theatre building. This mid-century modern building was a centerpiece of the Arts Campus as it was imagined over 50 years ago, and remains so today.
Its acoustics are top-notch, lighting and sound system are state-of-the-art, and there’s not a bad seat in the house. Arts United Center also contains spacious studios for rehearsals and meetings, a complete workshop backstage for set construction.
The Arts Plaza resides in front of the striking façade of the Arts United Center, opening up to Main Street. An entryway and grand promenade for public gatherings, festivals and community events, the Arts Plaza is an open door to arts and culture for Northeast Indiana residents and visitors.
