Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center Awards

Since its soft opening in August 2018, the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades for its design, production and contributions to the community as well as its impact on the local economy.

The concept of renovating and restoring the historical theater began years ago.  The entire project had a very extensive planning process, from taking the City’s concept of acquiring the actual theater and then renovating the RGPAC to bringing it to reality.

Their vision led to a development team, steered by City officials, which included Capital Campaigns, New Market Tax Credits, State and Historical Tax Credits in addition to obtaining interim and permanent financing, and consulting with experts in their fields in every aspect from lighting to color and aesthetics.

The City’s tireless efforts have resulted in a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center that has been recognized nationally for our community to enjoy.

Some of the Awards the RPGAC has received include:

  • 2018 Project of the Year by the Exponent Telegram
  • WVML All Star Community Award
  • WV Contractor Association Award (March-Westin)
  • AIA Craftmanship Award for Excellence in Architectural Design (WYK Architects)
  • AIA Honor Award for Excellence in Architectural Historic Preservation (WYK Architects)

 “It is great to see the fruits of our labor,” stated Mayor Cathy Goings “This was a long, tedious project.  Councils prior to us had considered doing the project, but it was only in the last four years that we were actually able to acquire the property and proceed with the project.”

By choosing to invest in the theater, communities are making an investment in themselves and the region around them.  Clarksburg is proud to support the Performing Arts and help culturally enrich the community.
