The Patricia Reser Center for the Arts will be a world–class multidisciplinary arts center in central Beaverton and it will 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 Center will offer educational and family programming in the visual and performing arts, and will host business, civic and social events.

This vision has been built from the ground up through an intentional partnership of public and private champions. The project is led by the City of Beaverton and a capital campaign to raise the remaining funds for the center is being led by the Beaverton Arts Foundation. Groundbreaking is anticipated at the end of 2019 upon completion of fundraising goals.

On July 17, 2018, the Beaverton Arts Foundation announced a pledge of $13 million to the project. With this exciting news also came the official name of the facility, the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts. This transformative pledge made possible by Pat Reser, is an investment that provides nearly one–third of the $46 million needed to build the center.

Another $21.9 million has already been identified from public sources, including a land donation and a new city Transient Lodging Tax (TLT). In total, 95 percent of the total project costs for the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts has already been identified through public and private philanthropic investment.
