"Look what you people in Eugene have here!" - k.d. lang
Built by the people of Eugene, the Hult Center has quite an impressive history. Since its grand opening in 1982, the Hult Center has been charming audiences and popular performers alike with its stunning architectural and acoustical features. From the towering glass Lobby, the massive 2,448-seat Silva Concert Hall with its basketweave ceiling, the intimate 498-seat Soreng Theater with its intriguing asymmetrical design, to the divine Jacobs Gallery downstairs, the Hult Center is truly a great arts facility. The Hult Center is operated by the City of Eugene's Cultural Services Division, as part of the City's Library, Recreation & Cultural Services Department.
The Hult Center for the Performing Arts is a performing arts venue in Eugene, Oregon, where more than 700 events and activities a year are presented by local, national and international promoters. Located in the heart of Eugene's vibrant downtown on Willamette Street between 6th & 7th Avenues, adjacent to the Hilton Eugene and Conference Center, the Hult Center opened its doors more than 30 years ago on September 24th, 1982, and is the first performing arts center in the country built without the benefit of state or national funding.
