Arts Plaza Campaign

Architect's Rendering of the New Bowlus Fine Arts Plaza

The Bowlus Fine Arts Plaza . . .From a Dream to Reality

The Friends of the Bowlus, Inc. have accumulated $800,000 toward their $1.3 million project - an improved east entrance with accessible parking, a circle drive for easy drop-off and pick-up, an outdoor performance area and a full-sized elevator which provides access to the main auditorium, the art gallery, and two levels of classrooms and offices. The design also includes a new, safe and easy to use loading dock needed to move scenery and equipment for stage productions and concert events.

The Friends organization believes that Mr. Bowlus' dream of a fine arts center included the opportunity for everyone in the community to attend and enjoy cultural and education programming. They want to bring the Bowlus a bit closer to that dream by making the building more easily accessible to all.

You can play an important role in making this dream a reality. Study the design of the plaza and decide how you would like to make an impact. You can make a donation online using your credit/debit card or download a donation form to include with your check. Checks may be mailed to the Bowlus office at 205 E. Madison Ave., Iola, KS  66749.
