Moving Forward Campaign

The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) celebrates the opening of its newest campus facility, the Performing Arts and Fitness Center. This $9.5 million center will provide professionally equipped rehearsal, dance and movement studios, a state-of the art flexible theater space (black box), plus a full gymnasium, cardio, and weight room. The Performing Arts and Fitness Center will be open in January 2018 for campus use—basketball, badminton, and volleyball in the spacious gymnasium, fitness classes, and theater productions, will all share a new home. Check back for the Center’s schedule and list of upcoming performances.

Your Support Made The Difference

In addition to securing significant funding from the State of New Mexico and various Federal sources, private Foundations and individuals also helped generously to make this extraordinary facility a reality.

We are so appreciative to the supporters of IAIA who helped us look to the future and complete this building—thank you to our donors!

Please feel free to contact the Office of Institutional Advancement with any questions, or to schedule a visit to discuss a gift to support the ongoing needs of the Performing Arts and Fitness Center.
