Eau Claire’s First Major Arts Center Opened in September

EAU CLAIRE, Wisconsin — The Pablo Center at the Confluence, Eau Claire’s first major arts center, opened on September 22 in downtown at the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers.

The modernistic center, shaped like a guitar, includes a 1,200-seat main theater and a flexible 400-seat theater, along with several art galleries that are free and open to the public.

The center also includes a multipurpose space on the third floor with views of the Chippewa River and the lighted Phoenix Park Bridge; rehearsal, dance and community rooms; visual arts studios and galleries; a recording studio; multimedia production and costume design spaces; and a scene shop.

The offices of Visit Eau Claire are in the building, and a new visitor center on the first floor will open in late October.
