Omaha Performing Arts Names New Building

Omaha Arts engagement

Omaha Performing Arts' (O-pa) new community engagement and education center, the third building on the O-pa campus designed by Ennead, is in the news following a major corporate donation. The facility has been named the Tenaska Center for Arts Engagement in recognition of a principal gift from the Omaha-based company.

The Tenaska Center for Arts Engagement will complete the O-pa campus, which is centered around the Holland Performing Arts Center and the recently opened and acclaimed Steelhouse Omaha.

The Tenaska Center for Arts Engagement will offer rehearsal, workshop, and classroom spaces to accommodate O-pa's expanding education and community engagement programs, which already serve more than 100,000 students, teachers and community members each year. A large event venue will also be part of the new center.

Site preparation has begun for the new facility. Groundbreaking is planned for October, with an anticipated opening in the Spring of 2026.
