The Hoogland Center for the Arts

Where the "Arts Come Alive" in Springfield, Illinois!

The Hoogland Center for the Arts is truly the center for the arts in Central Illinois. The Hoogland is home to over 20 organizations involved with performing arts, fine arts, service clubs and organizations devoted to enhancing the quality of life in our community.

As with all arts organizations, we have been impacted harshly by the Covid-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the support we have received during this difficult time.

We are using this time to build a new website to make it even easier for our patrons to enjoy the arts in Illinois.

Ballerinas, musicians, magicians, actors, painters — all are housed within our 80,000 square foot facility. However, as you can imagine, maintaining our large facility is a costly feat. In order to provide this home of the arts, we depend on the generosity of people like you.

We hope you will consider including the Hoogland Center in your charitable giving plans. The Hoogland is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, so your continued investment in our future assures a return to our community and its people.
