Brief Description

Originally built in 1972 on the UNO campus, the Willis S. and Janet Strauss Performing Arts Center (SPAC) is undergoing a major renovation. SPAC serves as the center of musical activity for the School of Music within the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media, as well as a prime Omaha performance location. The building's main performance space is the Concert Hall, seating 422 for over 200 performances a year. SPAC includes state-of-the-art recording studios, a Casavant Organ, Recital Hall, rehearsal studios and classrooms. The students utilizing these spaces consider the creative process of music experiences and careers available in the music field. A successful installation for this space exhibits a sense of timelessness and artistic excellence, a significant use of the available space, and content that is both relevant and inspirational. Opportunities There are two interior opportunities available, the hallway to the Recital Hall and the entrance to the Concert Hall
