RISE: Capital Campaign
The Campaign for Artists Repertory Theatre
We RISE to share stories that make sense of the modern world.
We RISE to create a building of quality equal to ART’s artistic work.
We RISE to support Portland’s artistic community through the ArtsHub.
Artists Rep’s downtown block reached the end of its useful life. A $7.1 million gift in 2018 kicked off our capital campaign, paid off the mortgage, and enabled the sale of the north half of our downtown block to Wood Partners. The $9 million received in the sale became the lead investment for reimagining our remaining south half block, in which the roof and a massive wood beam will rise to create a modern multi-use performing arts center with two theaters, four rehearsal halls, and collaborative spaces.
