As part of the June 29th 10-year anniversary celebration, TwispWorks announced plans for a performing arts pavilion coming to the TwispWorks Campus in 2020. Two years ago, TwispWorks constructed the Plaza@TwispWorks, a 14,000 square foot outdoor space including pathways, a splash pad for kids to cool off, native plantings and a bike repair station all designed to connect people to the outdoors and creating a space for the celebration of arts and culture. Part of that plan included a pavilion at the west end of the plaza to host events, performances and exhibits. Now, due to the generous support of an anonymous donor, TwispWorks has secured full funding and construction will begin spring 2020.
The 1,000 square foot pavilion will include three sides of movable acoustic walls and state of the art lighting and audio capabilities. As part of TwispWorks mission to support economic vitality through arts and culture, the pavilion will be available to local arts organizations to deliver free programming to the community. This can include musical, dance and theatrical performances as well as art exhibitions and special events all creating a more inviting space for the community to enjoy.
Initially conceived by Brice Butler, TwispWorks partner and architectural firm, Serious Fun Studio, has designed the pavilion as a signature structure on the TwispWorks campus. It visually ties the pavilion into the recent updates to campus including the new Old Schoolhouse Brewery and Taproom. As a whole, the updates to the TwispWorks campus creates a community hub and economic engine optimized for people to walk the campus and enjoy the outdoors, attend events, shop and dine.
