When you participate in our Star Walk program, you help keep alive our dream to provide a venue for first-class artistic performance. Your support keeps the building running and brimming with top-notch talent and programming.·Because of the generosity of people like you, young singers and dancers can hone their talents in the Springfield-based performance organization we host. People of all ages can attend top-caliber shows without having to travel to a big city. Downtown tourism, as well as local businesses, benefit from a beautiful performance venue in the capital city.


In a tough economy, community institutions, such as the Hoogland Center for the Arts, face challenges to sustain funding. At the same time, these institutions become increasingly important, providing a sense of civic pride that connects us in ways deeper than material things ever could. Places such as the Hoogland center for the Arts give us hope and confidence in even the darkest of times.

Thank you for supporting the Hoogland Center for the Arts.

Executive Director




How a Star is Born. Built to last a lifetime.
Dave Grove, of Galassi Masonry, installs a 11.75" square by 1/4" thick solid bronze plate in the walkway to the LRS Theatre, guiding the way for tens of thousands of visitors annually. Each star weighs an impressive 10 pounds and will last a lifetime.
