Blank Performing Arts Center

Named for Dr. and Mrs. A. H. Blank, this building was completed in 1971 to house the Theatre Arts Department. In 2011 an addition was added to Blank that included an elevator, expanded and accessible restrooms and increased handicapped seating to the facility to allow everyone to enjoy the performances held at Blank. The expansion created faculty space, teaching classrooms and labs and double the size of the lobby. Located in Blank are the 125-seat Barnum Studio Theatre and the 500-seat Pote Theatre, where the Des Moines Metro Opera performs its summer season. Guest artists and senior art students can display their work in the Barborka Gallery. Blank also contains a workshop and costume shop, as well as offices and classrooms
