GREENSBORO, NC, Sep. 25, 2013 – An article titled “Ten Best Proposed Performing Arts Centers” published in Yes! Weekly cited three Garfield performing arts centers – the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), the Utah Performing Arts Center, and the planned Lubbock Performing Arts Center.
According to author Brian Clarey, a strong group of supporters… believe a downtown performing-arts center would appeal to young professionals, increase tourism, create jobs and build prestige… the boosters repeatedly cite the success of the Durham Performing Arts Center. And projects like this are being discussed all across the country, for all the same reasons.
The Durham Performing Arts Center, which we developed in partnership with Chapel Hill architect Szostak Design, is a model of cultural and downtown redevelopment,” said Greg Garfield, President of Garfield Public/Private LLC. “We are proud to have played a part in the DPAC’s success and are applying our experience there to help a number of other communities realize their performing arts center ambitions, including Salt Lake City and Lubbock.
Located adjacent to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the American Tobacco Historic District, the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) is a public/private partnership between the City of Durham, Duke University, the developer and the theater operator. The 2,800-seat theater presents a variety of entertainment with superior architectural quality, functionality and flexibility, including touring Broadway and family shows, popular music and comedy, and Durham’s treasured American Dance Festival.
