ArtsBlock, in Wausau, Wisconsin is a $13.1 million cultural and civic asset that expands the 1927 Grand Theater as the centerpiece of an entire city block, and creates a community arts center with the restoration of the 1,200-seat historic theatre at the heart. The design concept for ArtsBlock links three historic structures on its downtown block, and creates flexible new facilities as it restores, enhances, and connects the existing buildings. Enlivened with multiple community activities, including visual arts, conference facilities, and the multi-use Great Hall, ArtsBlock brings together the performing and visual arts into a vital and integrated center.
