Spearfish, SD—In recognition of being selected to the 2015 Community Creativity Cohort

The Big Idea

The Matthews Opera House and Arts Center champions the arts in western South Dakota and acts as regional “community organizer” for the arts through its historic opera house, regional art gallery and summer arts festival. The Center believes the arts are a force for dynamic change and economic growth for regionally isolated areas, and works to create and lead broad community coalitions that use the arts to enhance quality of life, open a creative world to youth, provide opportunity for artistic expression, and foster cultural diversity.
