Performing Arts Center
This state-of-the-art performing arts center, designed by Muñoz & Company, not only serves the students of La Joya ISD, but also provides a public convocation venue for the entire community. This showpiece civic center highlights a primary source of civic pride for the community – the school district’s award-winning Mariachi Music program.
The 50,000 sf center houses a 1,500-seat theater with its full compliment of stage, set construction and performer’s dressing facilities. The facility also contains dedicated spaces for the school districts’ award-winning Mariachi, folkloric and dance programs. In addition to spaces for public meetings and conferences, the facility also includes a “black box” theatre with multi-media control and communication spaces.
The performing arts Center is accessed through an orchestrated arrangement of covered walks, terraces, courtyards and exterior lit lobbies which compliment the building’s exterior image and the energy, purpose and dedication of its users.
