BROKEN ARROW, OK — The City of Broken Arrow and Manhattan Construction Company recently broke ground on the new Center for Arts, Innovation, and Creativity in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

The Broken Arrow Center for the Arts, Innovation, and Creativity facility is a new two-story, 14,325-square-foot building that includes space for classrooms, offices, a gift shop, a woodworking shop, and an art gallery, and a 1,200-square-foot outdoor classroom on the second-floor roof deck. The project is scheduled to complete in fall 2021. Manhattan Construction Company is providing construction management services for the project, and Selser Schaefer Architects is the architect.

The City is working with ArtsOK, Inc., the nonprofit that will occupy the facility, on a use agreement and programming. This innovative space will be a destination in Broken Arrow’s Rose District and will serve to the enjoyment and education of the citizens in the entire metro area.

Joining the representatives from City of Broken Arrow and the project team at the ceremony were council members, and AVB Bank officials, who donated the land to the city earlier this year.

Before turning the dirt, Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond, AVB Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Ted Cundiff, AVB Board Chairman Kelley Kimbrough-Rash, Tulsa Performing Arts Center CEO Mark Frie, and incoming Center for Arts Director Jennifer Deal all said a few words to commemorate the event.

“I am so pleased to see this project finally come to fruition. This has been years in the making, and it is another great example of what can be accomplished in a public-private partnership," said Mark Frie, Chief Executive Officer at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. "The commitment of AVB Bank and the City of Broken Arrow, along with the citizens of Broken Arrow, donors from across the state, Kristin Chenoweth, and ArtsOK, have turned this dream into a reality."
