Performing Arts Center - School
450 North Ave, Battle Creek, MI 49017
The Davidson Center, which is free and open to the public and primarily houses the College’s visual and performing arts programs, was renovated in late 2014 to mid-2015. The $6.6 million renovation project, funded by the voter-approved capital millage renewed in 2012, significantly upgraded the center’s facilities and technology capabilities, expanded common areas for students and allowed for the integration of new equipment and materials, including a larger stage and new theater-style seating in the center’s auditorium.
Mark O’Connell, interim president of KCC, says the updated space “. . . is better equipped to serve in its role as a venue for the several community events held onsite each semester.” Additionally, O’Connell says that the new space is “. . . a better version of the asset it’s always been to the Battle Creek community.”
