CSPS is dedicated to community building through the presentation, advocacy, and support of the arts, music, and theater of our time. For more than 30 years CSPS has been committed to being a true multi-disciplinary arts center from the local to international level.
Today, CSPS presents 15 to 20 visual art exhibitions each year along with 100 or more performing arts, educational, and community events. Emphasizing new and diverse voices, these programs highlight artists from Iowa to countries around the world. At the same time, CSPS Hall serves as an anchor and inspiration for New Bohemia, a thriving and rapidly growing cultural district comprised of galleries, studios, restaurants, bars, and book, record, and other various stores.
CSPS also offers our community rental space for events with special artist and nonprofit rates, as well as partnerships with organizations including The Gazette, SPT Theatre, Revival Theatre Company, CR Pride, Cedar Rapids Opera, and more.
