Arts Center-Coming Soon
Arts center information
The City of Yorba Linda is in the process of finalizing construction documents for the new Library and Arts Center. Both facilities will be located on Lakeview Avenue across the street from the new Town Center. Groundbreaking for the New Library and Arts Center is anticipated to take place at the end of this year with the grand opening slated for summer 2020.
The new Arts Center will be approximately 13,000 square feet and will include a Black Box Theater, Green Room, Dance Studio, Gallery Space, and Arts Studio, and will share outdoor seating throughout the landscaped paseo, which runs between the new Library and Arts Center, as well as a small Event Meadow grass area. The Arts Center will be operated by the Parks and Recreation Department and will offer a variety of adult and youth classes and programs such as dance, exercise, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, theater, and music and voice lessons. The Black Box Theater is anticipated to be a popular venue for rehearsals and performances, which will include a green room for performers that will double as a music studio. The Arts Center will be used by local community groups and non-profit organizations to host theater productions, public art exhibits, art festivals, and other special events.
In preparation of the new Arts Center's opening in the summer of 2020, the City of Yorba Linda would like the public's input on the naming of the Arts Center by suggesting a name and reasoning for the new name via the City's online survey, which will be available for the public to complete until August 5. The survey consists of two brief questions and should take no longer than two minutes to complete. The Parks and Recreation Commission will take public testimony and review potential names at their August 16 meeting held at 6:30 p.m. at Yorba Linda City Hall (4845 Casa Loma Avenue).
