Video Update: Arts Feasibility Study

Join Mayor Hamilton and Assistant Director for the Arts Holly Warren as they discuss the arts feasibility study released in October 2022 and the progress made since its publication.


Based on extensive public input and analysis, the Study Team made several key recommendations: retain the Waldron Arts Center as a core asset, increase community programming and downtown and neighborhood activation, no new performing arts center, create an arts and culture incubator, and integrate arts and culture into a proposed expanded convention center. 


The City of Bloomington, in partnership with Trahan Architects, released recommendations in October 2022 to advance the arts across the city. The 2021 Waldron Recommendation Task Force recommended the study and was part of the Recover Forward initiative to help the community recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
