611 Fifth St SW, Willmar, MN

The Willmar Education and Arts Center, located in what was once the Willmar Senior High School, is a facility for both community arts events and the Willmar Public Schools district office. The building houses an art exhibition gallery and a 750-seat performance auditorium. Over the past 25 years continual efforts have been made to improve the facility for arts related purposes. A rehearsal hall, green room, and a performance shell for the stage with a state of the art sound system make it a welcoming venue for performances. The gallery space, located in the lobby area, is used for exhibitions arranged by the Willmar Area Arts Council.
