Venue Description

The Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center is an educational arts facility located at the entrance of the campus on the corner of Hanna Avenue and Shelby Street. This award-winning architectural structure houses a 500-seat two-tiered Ruth Lilly Performance Hall, a superior art gallery, practice rooms, art studios and classroom and a lecture hall equipped with state-of-the-art learning technology.
Ruth Lilly Performance Hall
The luminary within the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center, the 500-seat Viennese-style hall has been called "unparalleled in acoustical quality." Similar in features to the great concert halls of Europe and equal to any performance hall of its size in the country, every detail of the hall, from the density of the seat cushions to the 28-inch-thick hand-plastered walls (not drywalled), maximizes the acoustic performance, so that whether five persons or 500 are seated, sound fils the hall as though there is a capacity crowd. In fact the space is acoustically perfect—a whisper in any spot in the hall can be heard in any other spot.
Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center Gallery
Adjacent to the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall, the high ceiling, spacious walls and natural light in the gallery make it ideal for displaying a wide variety of two- and three-dimensional works.
