Westby Performing Arts Center

Westby, WI | Education

Overview

Bringing a heightened awareness to the long-lasting tradition of providing exceptional performing arts opportunities to districts throughout the area, the Westby Performing Arts Center includes the proper layout, acoustics, and amenities for today’s performers and engaged audience.


Opportunity

Although a new performing arts center was considered when the Westby Area Middle School was originally built, the project went unrealized due to a lack of funding, leaving the community without a proper performance venue.

Solution

Once the community was able to raise funds through donations and pledges, as well as approval for a referendum, ISG provided designs for the new Westby Performing Arts Center. ISG worked with members of the local Fine Arts Foundation, representatives from the City administrative and advisory council, and other community partners to ensure facility designs fulfilled the District’s varied needs. The 14,645-square-foot facility seats 468 people and features a stage area with an orchestra pit, control room, dressing rooms, storage areas, lighting platforms, and exit stairways, enabling the facility to host a variety of events like plays, concerts, art exhibits, and summer camps.
