Center for Artists and Education Rental

The Center for Artists and Education, completed in March 2020, comprises of three levels, all available for rental. The first floor offers a covered loading dock, star dressing rooms, and rehearsal space, all included with theater rental.

The Fred & Emily Weitz Community Room,  located on the second floor, is the perfect space for formal and informal events such as corporate meetings, luncheons, family gatherings, educational workshops, and seminars. This room can seat up to 100 guests, has standing room for 175 and boasts a kitchenette, restrooms and large, picturesque windows.

The third floor is home to the Krause Great Hall, which can seat 50 and has standing room for 80 guests. Small, intimate receptions and parties work well in this space, which can also serve as a beautiful backdrop for a business meeting or private event. Large windows overlook downtown Des Moines, and the south wall displays the historic brick that was the original exterior of the building, giving a nod to Hoyt Sherman Place’s history, while also bringing its functionality and relevance into the present and beyond.
