The Arts Campus at Willits defines the cultural identity of the Roaring Fork Valley by curating, presenting and producing performing, cinematic and culinary arts events. In just a few years of programming, we have served more than 30,000 patrons in the valley through our programming at The Temporary and, more recently, with our Random Acts of Culture Series. We are currently moving forward with the construction of The Contemporary, a 21st-century performing arts facility. The building is the first phase of a more extensive art, culture, and education campus that will be built over time. The Arts Campus at Willits will continue to integrate the arts into the fabric of our community, inspire residents with compelling performances, and introduce us all to new perspectives and viewpoints.
The idea for TACAW emerged when Willits was conceived 25 years ago and the developers set aside a Performing Arts Parcel. Willits has grown up around this parcel into a diverse, progressive, inclusive, active, walkable community that has emerged as the retail, services, and residential pulse of the MidValley. The transformative opportunities of an arts and cultural center are inspiring given Willits’s rising status as the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley. The completed campus will infuse the Midvalley with the excitement, energy and spirit that great art brings out in all who experience it, those who perform it, and the community that grows around it.
