The Arvada Center is an absolutely
amazing place full of creativity,
music, and great times. I have been
going to the Arvada Center for my
entire life, for school field trips,
summer camps, concerts, musicals,
plays, and banquet functions. The
staff is always friendly, the parking
is ample and free, and the shows
they have there are spectacular.

2014 was a year of change and expansion for the Arvada Center. In addition to exciting new programming, we made substantial
progress in our transition to private, nonprofit governance.
The biggest artistic expansion was in music, where existing programming gave us an excellent foundation from which to build
a comprehensive new program. The Jeffrey Seigel Keyboard ConversationsTM celebrated its 27th season, and we made plans to
expand the current evening concert series to include morning coffee concerts, beginning in fall 2015. Our summer concert series
experienced artistic growth through a new partnership with Swallow Hill Music Association, and we launched our first season with a
resident musical ensemble – the Colorado Chamber Orchestra.
Our humanities program included a three-day symposium which brought together artists, scholars, politicians, scientists and activists to examine the background and aftermath of the 1989 FBI/EPA raid on the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons facility. Another major
program, in partnership with the Chabad of NW Metro Denver, was a moving talk by Eva Schloss, Holocaust survivor and stepsister
of Anne Frank. Both of these programs brought hundreds of new patrons to the Center.
In our gallery program, we were pleased to offer UNBOUND: Sculpture in the Field, an exhibition of outdoor sculpture by some of Colorado’s top artists. In partnership with the Museum
of Outdoor Arts, this temporary exhibition has been extended for more than a year, as we
seek ways to transform the field into a permanent, landscaped sculpture park.
We again offered a wide range of work in our theatres, from a sellout production of Agatha
Christie’s The Mousetrap to a much-admired production of the musical Memphis, which
garnered nine Henry Award nominations from the Colorado Theatre Guild.
Lastly, our progress toward nonprofit governance advanced through a series of key Arvada
City Council votes, the appointment of our founding board of directors and the negotiation
of a twenty-year cooperative agreement between the City and the Arvada Center. We remain
on track to transition the Arvada Center on July 1, 2016 – just in time for our 40th Anniversary.

As a department of the City of Arvada, the Arvada Center has received significant financial and service support from the City over
the last 39 years. This support has allowed the Center to grow beyond Arvada into a regional arts organization that serves the
entire metropolitan area. Due to this tremendous growth, the City and the Center have been exploring other governance models
that would better serve the Arvada Center and its patrons. After several comprehensive studies, the Arvada City Council has voted
to transition the Arvada Center to a privately-run nonprofit organization that will take effect July 1, 2016.
This transition will be an exciting time for the Arvada Center and it coincides with the Arvada Center’s 40th Anniversary, which
is another reason to celebrate. As with any change, there may be a few bumps along the way. However, our hope is that these
bumps are mostly positive. The City will continue to support the Center as it always has, and the new governance model will
allow the Center to offer new and innovative programming along with its award-winning theatre productions, art exhibitions and
educational programs.
The autonomy from the City will enable the Center to function like a true cultural arts center, rather than a department of city
government. This nonprofit will be “new,” but with deep roots in the community. It will have the advantages of an established
organization with loyal patrons and donors, but with new and fresh leadership that will focus on improving the Center overall.
Naturally, with these changes and improvements the funding needs for the Center will grow. Research shows that as a private
nonprofit, the Arvada Center will be well positioned to cultivate new relationships and partnerships to increase its contributed
income. Once the transition is complete, the Center, without its municipal connection, will be eligible to apply for all types of
funding. And, patrons who previously did not want to make donations to a City-run department can now be assured that their
contributions will further the mission of the Arvada Center. We are excited about the possibilities of what we can accomplish on
our own.
As the Crown Jewel of Arvada, we are confident that we will create a stronger and more sustainable multidisciplinary arts organization that you can enjoy for many years to come.

– Regional Premiere
Theatre Meets The Humanities
In April, the Arvada Center produced a live
reading of the radio play Embers, by Samuel
Beckett, in support of the Clyfford Still Museum
exhibition, 1959: The Albright-Knox Art Gallery
Exhibition Recreated.
In the late 1950s, when Clyfford Still and his fellow Abstract Expressionists were at the height
of their popularity, theatre artists were struggling to move past the constraints of Realism
– and perhaps none succeeded as well as Nobel
Laureate Samuel Beckett.
The Mousetrap
is comforting
— Juliet Wittman,
Denver Westword
The live reading was presented in the Center’s
Black Box Theatre and also at the Clyfford Still
Museum. Prior to the reading, Amanda Giguere,
Ph.D. and lecturer at CU Boulder, set the stage
with an introductory talk about Beckett’s impact
on the theatre and his resonance with other
artistic experiments in visual arts, music, and

presented by Phamaly Theatre Company
The Arvada Center offers patrons a special engagement
production each year. In 2014, and for the past several
years, the Arvada Center has proudly partnered with
Phamaly Theatre Company, which presents professional-scale plays and musicals exclusively starring actors with
disabilities. In 2012, 5280 magazine ranked Phamaly as the
Top Theatre Company, and Phamaly won the 2012 Alliance
for Colorado Theatre Community/Professional Theatre
Company of the Year award.
The Last Romance
Tarzan: A High Flying Production
For the Center’s 2014 summer musical Tarzan, eight
performers took to the vines and learned to fly with
the help of Flying by Foy, a leader in aerial performance
that has done flight design for Broadway shows such as
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins. The last time
the Arvada Center undertook such a high-flying show
was Peter Pan in 1992, which also used Flying by Foy. The
Tarzan cast underwent four intense days of flight training,
and unlike some Broadway shows that use computerized flying sequences, the Center’s production relied on
trained flight operators to manually make the arcs and
grand swings that audiences expect of Tarzan.
The Last Romance
presented by Creede Repertory Theatre
In 2014, Arvada Center audiences were treated to the
Creede Repertory Theatre production of The Last Romance,
a delightful romantic comedy about love in the golden
years. Founded in 1966, Creede Repertory Theatre is a
professional theatre company located at 9,000 feet in the
San Juan Mountains of Colorado. CRT’s company produces big city quality productions in a spectacular location
each summer, and for the past six years has brought one
of their award-winning productions to the Arvada Center.
After many years of being recognized for the high
quality of our theatre productions and our gallery
exhibitions – which are produced and created inhouse – we are excited to be able to offer patrons
a resident orchestra of the same high quality.

and composer-in-residence programs. As the
Arvada Center’s resident orchestra, the CCO
rehearses and performs regularly at the Center
and mentors and coaches student musicians
in the Center’s Front Range Youth Symphony.
Maestro Thomas Blomster leads the orchestra
in performances of familiar favorites as well as

Children’s Theatre
The children’s theater provided by the Arvada
Center is always such a high quality production!!!
And it is a good value, at your reasonable ticket
price! The kids (and adults!) marvel at the creative
ways you bring a story to life (set! costumes!).
Your people who handle our requests for tickets
and follow-up are always so friendly and helpful.
Thank you again for a great theater experience!

Lyle the Crocodile was absolutely
delightful and had me giggling along with
the kids in the audience the entire time!
— Michael Mulhern, broadwayworld.com
The Arvada Center offers award-winning theatre for children throughout the school year, including shadow-interpreted and audio-described performances so that
students with hearing and visual challenges are able
to enjoy and participate in live theatre alongside their
classmates. The Center’s production for 2014 was Lyle
the Crocodile, featuring an extraordinary crocodile that
can tap dance, perform household chores and rescue
cats from burning buildings. Nearly 46,000 school children enjoyed this delightful musical tale during 2014,
all the while learning about not judging others by their
appearance and about loving people (and crocodiles)
for who they are.

In 2014, nearly 34,000 school children participated in the Center’s educator-respected
Arts Day program, including 9,700 low-income and disabled youth who received discounts and free services. Each customizable Arts Day field trip includes, in addition to a
children’s theatre performance, a hands-on workshop and an arts discovery experience
— gallery tour, history museum visit or actor-led theatre tech talk. The Arvada Center
is also known for its creative and stimulating outreach programming that brings arts
and cultural experiences to schools and youth-serving organizations. In 2014, the Center’s outreach program made a difference in the lives of nearly 8,600 children and youth
throughout the Denver metro area.
I can’t thank you enough for your
financial help, which allows us to
participate in all you have to offer.
Without your assistance, we would
not be able to enrich our children’s
lives to such an extent. Thank you.

With extensive educational offerings in drama, dance, ceramics, humanities, music and visual arts,
the Arvada Center provides learning opportunities for aspiring artists of all ages, including programs such as ArtStart for preschoolers and Arts for Ageless Adults, designed to provide inspiration for creative spirits ages 55 and over. The Center’s 750 classes, summer camps and professional-level training programs served nearly 7,000 students in 2014.
Front Range Youth Symphony
Teen Intensive
Urinetown The Musical
Arvada Center Dance Theatre
The Arvada Center’s Front Range Youth Symphony Orchestras (FRYS) bring together aspiring young musicians from across Colorado’s Front Range for unique study and training in orchestral music. With four
levels of participation — Youth Symphony, Chamber Orchestra, Concert Strings Orchestra and Academy
Strings — FRYS provides professional section coaches, guest artists, master classes and the opportunity
to perform in the Center’s Main Stage Theatre. Concerts for 2014 included Americana, Annual Teacher
Appreciation Concert and Autumn Beauty.
The Arvada Center has been offering quality
dance instruction for nearly four decades in
ballet, jazz, modern, tap and hip hop, and is
responsible for training countless dancers
who have gone on to receive college scholarships and perform in professional dance
companies and on Broadway. In addition to
year-round professional-level academy training, the Arvada Center offers a wide range
of general dance classes for toddlers, teens,
adults and seniors. 2014 dance concerts included Babes in Toyland, Mixed Emotions and
The Arvada Center Theatre Academy offers
students, from beginning to advanced, yearround training so they can develop skills and
knowledge in all areas of theatre arts. From
comedy and improvisation to musical and
classical theatre, students learn the skills
they need for the stage. Training culminates
each summer in fully-staged drama camps,
ranging from three to five weeks. 2014 productions included Pinocchio, Much Ado About
Nothing, Sound of Music, Urinetown, Fame and
Trifles Light as Air.

GaGa for Fashion
Arts for Ageless Adults
Beginning in 2014, the Arvada Center began
placing renewed emphasis on the second
part of its name by offering more programming in the humanities. New classes for
2014 included the Four Seasons of Poetry,
which featured poetry workshops and “open
mic” evenings in the Center’s Main Gallery. A
new Mother-Daughter Book Club, designed to
encourage reading, bonding and socializing
among mothers, daughters and friends, welcomes stepmothers, foster mothers, aunts,
guardians, grandmothers and dual moms.
And the new theatre salon program provides
avid theatre patrons the opportunity to get
in the mind of the playwright and behind the
scenes of selected theatrical productions.
In addition to new classes, the Center hosted several humanities events, including a
weekend of art and conversation about the
FBI/EPA raid and closure of the Rocky Flats
nuclear weapons plant that was located
northwest of Arvada, and it presented a talk
by Eva Schloss, the stepsister and childhood
friend of Anne Frank.
Visiting Ceramics Artists Series
The Arvada Center’s ceramics education studio has been in operation
since the Center opened in 1976. With a nationally recognized reputation as a high quality, well-equipped and expertly staffed ceramics
education program, the Center attracts renowned national and international ceramics artists to the Center each summer for the visiting
artists program such as Katie Caron, Kazu Oba, Bob Smith, Don Cox
and Willie Eggeman.
In 2014, the Center hosted visiting Kansas studio artist and university
lecturer Brenda Lichman. In her two-day Surface: Slip and Soda workshop, which was sold out, Brenda shared her soda kiln philosophy,
demonstrated glazing and slip techniques and led participants in
loading and firing a salt/soda kiln. In attendance were six teens from
Smoky Hill High School in Aurora who were able to attend due to the
fundraising efforts of their art teacher.

community organizations and an inspiring environment for artists and art lovers. In addition to exhibiting professional artists, the Arvada Center is committed to supporting aspiring artists through annual
community and school exhibitions, and to providing docent-led interpretive tours, artist talks, demonstrations, guest lectures and other educational programming, all free of charge.

Exhibition Spotlight
The Arvada Center’s Collin Parson and Kristin Bueb have put together one great exhibit
after another, but their finest effort to date has been the combination of shows that included
UNBOUND: Sculpture in the Field. Not only is it a cogent survey of some of the top abstract and
conceptual sculptors active in Colorado, but it also marks the artistic activation of a formerly
empty lot next to the Center — which appears to be the perfect space for giant sculpture.

In Partnership With:
UNBOUND: Sculpture in the Field
In placing art, it changes the landscape of Arvada and
brings the programming of the Arvada Center galleries inside, out.
In the summer of 2014, after nearly 40 years, the Arvada Center re-imagined the 17 acres of open space located
south of its building to create a compelling and engaging outdoor sculpture venue. The debut exhibition, UNBOUND:
Sculpture in the Field, curated and designed in partnership with the Museum of Outdoor Arts, featured 27 sculptures
of various sizes and media by 15 highly acclaimed Colorado artists. Plans are to transform and evolve the site over
the years to create a one-of-a-kind space in the Western region to showcase modern and contemporary sculptures.
Awards and Honors
• Best of Westword award for Best Group Sculpture Show
• Ranked #3 in the Westword article, “The Five Best Denver-Area Art Shows in 2014”
• Named SECOND BEST Colorado Art Show of 2014 by the regional arts publication, Art Ltd.
In 2014, Arvada Center volunteers provided
the equivalent of $507,540 worth of labor!
The Arvada Center is fortunate to have a cadre of dedicated volunteers who provide invaluable service in helping meet its diverse operational needs. In 2014, 336 volunteers contributed nearly 22,000 hours of support. On any given day, Arvada Center volunteers can be
found ushering patrons to their theatre seats, escorting school children to arts workshops, leading gallery and museum tours, providing
clerical support, preparing materials for educational programs, serving on boards and committees, assisting with various backstage
needs and much more. In addition, the Arvada Center provides a fertile training ground for individuals interested in pursuing careers in
the creative industries. Annually, the Center offers internships in everything from technical theatre and exhibition design to development
and marketing. The Center also provides teens with opportunities to gain work experience as summer camp interns and aides.

About the Center
Love the Arvada Center!
The quality of shows produced
here rivals most at the DCPA,
and you get to park for free!
— Stacy P.
The mission of the Arvada Center is to provide arts and humanities
to patrons and visitors near and far so they can be engaged,
challenged and inspired to experience their world in new ways.
6901 Wadsworth Boulevard
Arvada, CO 80003
The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities began as a place to
preserve local history. Thanks to forward-thinking citizens, what
was merely a heritage museum expanded to become a multidisciplinary facility that is now a model for arts centers across the
nation. Dedicated on July 4, 1976, the Arvada Center welcomed
nearly 12,000 visitors its first year. It now ranks as the eighth largest cultural attraction in metro Denver and is one of the leading
employers of creative people in Colorado. Through its diversity
of programming, continuous commitment to the underserved
and nationally recognized services for individuals with challenges,
the Arvada Center welcomes more than 300,000 visitors annually. With more than half its patrons coming from outside Arvada
and surrounding Jefferson County, its influence now extends far
beyond its name. Supported by over 2,500 donors, the Scientific &
Cultural Facilities District, Colorado Creative Industries and the City
of Arvada, the acclaimed Arvada Center celebrated its 38th year in
2014 dedicated to enriching, inspiring and educating all ages.
Fantastic art opening three different shows.
Couldn’t have asked for a more collective space or
better finger foods! Just wish it was closer to home
so I can have my own FREE museum nearby.
