Celebrating the Arts

Dance, Music, Visual …

Corvallis is a vibrant community of artists and art-lovers. It seems like every other week we have a big artistic event happening to celebrate our local performers and creators and show off their works. We have a diverse array of arts galleries, and most of our downtown shops proudly offer locally-produced goods, jewelry, and decorations.

In 2012 and 2013, our celebrations are going to be bigger and better than ever, because we have some major anniversaries coming up!

The Whiteside Theatre’s 90th anniversary happens in 2012. This grand old theatre was one of Oregon’s original movie palaces. Though time took its long toll on this gorgeous theatre, our community is working to restore this historical gem to all of its former glory.

The Arts Center

The Arts Center turns 50 in 2012, also. The Center works to integrate arts into the Corvallis community through outreach and creative education programs, among other projects. It’s also devoted to showcasing some of the best our artists have to offer. And speaking of showcasing local arts, our Fall Festival marks its 40th year in 2012. This festival turns Corvallis into an artistic Mecca, drawing creators from all over the state and almost 30,000 people annually to enjoy those creations!

The da Vinci Days Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2013. Every year da Vinci Days devotes three days to arts and science, incorporating outstanding artists, amazing feats of engineering, and more into a stunning sensory experience that would do its namesake proud. We expect its 25th year to be nothing short of amazing.

The big anniversary belongs to the Majestic Theatre, which will see its 100th anniversary in 2013. The Majestic first opened its doors in 1913 as a vaudeville house, and a century later it’s still serving Corvallis as a center of live arts, attracting local, regional, and national musicians, featuring live theatre, and acting as a hub for artists of all stripes in Corvallis.

We invite you to join us in 2012 and 2013 to help us celebrate our artists and their work in a year-long gala honoring the spirit of innovation and artistic creation!
