Plano ISD is accepting recommendations, possible sponsorships for name of future fine arts center


Plano ISD is accepting from the public name recommendations for its future fine arts center.

The center, which will be located at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Alma Drive, is expected to open in fall 2020.

Plano ISD spokesperson Lesley Range-Stanton said the district began accepting name recommendations at the beginning of October. PISD is also considering sponsored naming rights for the facility, Range-Stanton said.

The center will include a 1,500-seat performance hall, rehearsal space, a black box theater and an art gallery, as previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper.

Design and architectural firms Perkins+Will and Bora Architects released in late 2017 renderings of the future facility.

“This facility serves a vision larger than the sum of its parts,” principal at Bora Architects Stephen Weeks said in a news release near the end of 2017. “Four state-of-the-art venues will showcase students’ hard work and talent. Our design is a celebration of these young learners, and reflects the district’s commitment to the transformative power of arts education that we find optimistic and inspiring. We want the building to be a bright, beautiful invitation to the whole community.”
