The new Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center designed by Westlake Reed Leskosky preserves the original 1969 Woodstock concert site as it creates a vibrant international cultural destination. Along with multiple performing arts venues, the project includes a Museum of Woodstock with immersive exhibits to tell the story of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, its historical context and its influence on American culture. The interpretation extends throughout the 37 acres of the original Yasgur Farm and spills out - as did the 1969 concertgoers - into hundreds of surrounding acres to recall the magic that was created at this iconic site.
