Pablo Center Has Officially Announced Their Third Season
Pablo Center at the Confluence is thrilled to announce Season 3: Dream. Create. Inspire. to the public.
Pablo Center’s Season 3 is about using the power of art to dream big, to create, and to inspire new possibilities as they offer a creative outlet to help navigate the process of healing and of bringing people back together. Season 3 also brings Eau Claire’s first Broadway production with Waitress; see the full line-up here.
Executive Director, Jason Jon Anderson said, “This powerful triad of creative process words serves as the core to the greater Pablo Center mission. They were present through the construction of the building, our grand opening 20 short months ago, and they ensure we keep the horizon in focus, always moving us forward. These three words are crucial descriptors in the cyclical, non-stop creative process each of us possess and utilize every day. They embolden the entrepreneurial spirit. They serve as reflection points to stay in touch with our inner child. They highlight some of the best qualities within humanity and encourage us to challenge one another to push the human race forward. These three words dare us as individuals and as a whole to be more. They remind us that we are all makers and part of the creative process. They serve as the title for Season 3.”
After having their second season halted due to COVID19, Pablo Center has been busy strengthening collaborations,
partnerships, community involvement, educational outreach, leading regional initiatives, leading national legislation, and collaborating on national reopening guidelines for live event venues. For example, Pablo Center brought their art education program online with ARTmobile@home and started #SupportLocalSupportArt - a social media series highlighting local artists and artisans as well as works of theirs for sale. Now with the announcement of this season, Pablo Center plans to build on this momentum while looking forward to bringing an eclectically curated season that is meant to bring the community together after a tumultuous several months.
Director of Artistic Programming, Evan Middlesworth said about Season 3,“The past several months has been educational,
thought provoking and life changing for me. Stepping into a new position and facing new challenges has caused me to focus intently on and fully understand the importance of this role. I appreciate, now more than ever, the power of our community and my responsibility to the Chippewa Valley and Pablo Center team. Anais Mitchell’s Making the Music, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, and The Secret Sisters are just a small few of the shows I look forward to. Plus, we have a wide array of local artists that I have the honor of calling my friends and collaborators set to bring their talents to our stages. I’m proud of the work we’ve all done to bring Season 3 to life and excited for what still lies in store.”
On the start of the next season and opening the building, Anderson said, “We stay committed to ensuring artist, guest, and staff safety is paramount through all phases of our reopening. We are excited to open the galleries, theatres, and building when allowed indoor event capacities increase and physical-distancing requirements are minimized. On
behalf of the entire core staff, we are looking forward to hosting you, hopefully in October, and presenting you with our
incredible third season.”
