What is the Center?
The Center for the Arts is a growing art center campus in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. This facility, often referred to as "the Center," currently consists of the 41,000 square foot Arts & Education Pavilion, as well as the Jean Louise and Mike Thieme Performing Arts Pavilion, which includes a 500-seat theater, a Music Center, theater rehearsal space, and additional administrative space. The Center for the Arts is located at 240 South Glenwood Street.
The Arts & Education Pavilion is a multi-tenant facility housing, hosting and partnering with 17 local, state and regional not-for-profit arts and higher organizations. Fifteen of these organizations rent permanently affordable space from the Center for the Arts. Within the contemporary and thoughtfully designed Arts & Education Pavilion are studios, classrooms and offices designed specifically for these resident organizations.
Locating these arts and education organizations, and the people who keep them running, under one roof has created an atmosphere of collaboration and inspiration.
The Center for the Arts administration also resides in and uses the facility on a daily basis. Our staff is charged with developing this art center campus in downtown Jackson and managing the day-to-day operations of the facility.

Jean Louise and Mike Thieme Performing Arts Pavilion
Completed in 2007, the Jean Louise and Mike Thieme Performing Arts Pavilion, including the 500-seat Center Theater, was designed for maximum flexibility. The theater's 200-seat orchestra level allows smaller gatherings and presentations to share an intimate experience. The 300-seat balcony provides seating for larger audiences. The Center Theater Lobby is an ideal venue for fundraising receptions, art auctions, corporate meetings, and private events. The Music Center, also located in the Performing Arts Pavilion, offers a prime location of rehearsal and meeting space.
