CFPA - Center for Performing Arts - Minneapolis


In spring 2019, cfpa announced the planning process for a building expansion that will provide two 100-seat performance spaces, tenant and studio spaces, and better accessibility. The goal of the expansion is to add space for more performances and community gatherings, serving audiences, artists, and the neighborhood.

cfpa continues to be engaged in the process of talking with artists, neighbors and consultants, which is informing the expansion’s physical structure and its programming.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2020.

“Amid a local arts landscape that has recently seen at least eight long-standing performance organizations and venues close or reduce operations, we saw a critical opportunity to fill a need,” said Jackie Hayes, owner and executive director of cfpa.  “Our artist and neighborhood communities are looking for more space to gather around arts activity and programs, and for new models to achieve business success at the same time. We are creating a shared space and programming where artists and audiences both benefit—a place that is a sustaining ecosystem for everyone.”
