Project Description

The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts (formerly known as the Minnesota Shubert Center) will be the state’s first flagship center for dance and other performing arts. The Center will provide space for over 20 nonprofit organizations to work, teach, rehearse, audition, and perform, as well as house an award-winning distance learning program. The project consists of rehabilitating the historic Shubert Theater and constructing a new “Great Hall” connecting with the adjacent Hennepin Center for the Arts building. In addition to strengthening a cultural and educational institution, the project will stabilize a challenged block of downtown Hennepin Avenue, utilize green building techniques, and create dozens of construction and operational jobs. The project overall is expected to create 100 construction jobs.
