The Dolores Dore Eccles Center for the Performing & Fine Arts at Utah Tech University (formerly known as Dixie State College) facility is a cross-disciplinary environment for music, theatre, fine arts and dance, as well as providing a cultural bridge to the community. The project was developed to encourage interaction and dialogue between the different disciplines, promoting a learning environment outside the traditional classroom. As the community’s primary performing arts venue, the facility also establishes a sophisticated cultural experience with student productions as well as accommodating traveling performing arts companies.
