The Whitaker Center is one of the many examples that shows how different people can work together to create something great. The space was once nothing more than an empty lot in downtown. But with the help of community leaders leading by example and city planners envisioning what could be – something great was done. It became clear that this place would house not only a convention center, but also much more.
In addition, a distinct cultural plan was established. The Cultural Plan proposed the creation of a center that would house various prominent spaces. That includes an art museum and the Museum for Scientific Discovery. Also, a theater space with a workshop area was created as well. Now, Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts has been able to build a cultural center that directly impacts lives!
