Tuesday, FEBRUARY 23, 2021 was the virtual groundbreaking at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center. The event will celebrate the beginning of renovation of the main building at 325 W. Walnut Street.

The project when completed will vastly expand accommodations for increasing access for arts education programming for Milwaukee’s youth. The build out of the garden level will have significant space for more individualized instruction, additional rehearsal spaces, and a second Commons gathering area, a central point in the facility where students and parents from diverse backgrounds come together for significant and potential lifelong connections. The main floor will have a new safer front entrance and improvements to Mainstage Hall.  Finally, the entire facility will have upgraded technology in the building.

This is an incredibly exciting time for the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center community and we express our gratitude to our family of donors, our students and their families, and to our board, staff, and volunteers for their support.
