The Patricia Reser Center for the Arts is currently under construction in downtown Beaverton and is anticipated to open to the public in late 2021. The center will be a world–class multidisciplinary arts center to enhance the cultural and economic vitality of Beaverton, Washington County and the greater region by providing more access to arts, entertainment, and educational programming for residents and visitors. It will be an arts and entertainment destination drawing from far and wide; a home for a variety of touring programs, professional performances, and a much–needed rental resource to regional arts groups. The Reser Center will offer educational and family programming in the visual and performing arts, and will host business, civic and social events.

The $48 million dollar project is a public-private partnership. In partnership with the Beaverton Arts Foundation, the capital fundraising campaign has raised 98 percent of the funds required for construction, including $13 million transformative pledge from Pat Reser chair of Reser’s Fine Foods, and many donors contributing at all levels from the region. Another $21 million has been identified from public sources, including a land donation and the City of Beaverton’s Transient Lodging Tax (TLT). The Reser Center project was borne out of the City of Beaverton’s community visioning process dating back to 2009 when residents requested a performing arts facility closer to home on the west side in Beaverton and to create more access to arts and culture. Since then, multiple feasibility and market studies have been conducted prior to ground-breaking in November 2019.
