Decades ago the dream at Tabor College to build a campus home for the fine arts began. The strength and tradition of the music and drama programs at Tabor made them the heart of the college since the beginning. They are symbols of distinction that have touched thousands of lives and proclaimed God’s glory.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Center for the Arts took place in May 2015 and construction was completed in December 2017.  This two-story, state-of-the-art facility features a fully equipped performance auditorium and black-box theatre complete with scene shop, green room and dressing rooms, a large art gallery, grand lobby, offices, classrooms, labs for photography, ceramics and art, recording studio, choral rehearsal room and a visual arts education wing. Tabor’s dedication to the arts and the community will be seen and felt throughout this amazing facility.  The 830-seat auditorium will accommodate a huge range of events, from simple lectures all the way up to dramatic performances with live orchestral and choral accompaniment.  View building specifications and floor plan here.
