2010 AIA Minneapolis Merit Awards - The Mabel Tainter Theater
Jun 8, 2010
The Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater, Center for the Arts, has won one of four 2010 AIA Minneapolis Merit Awards for their recent restoration. Located on Main Street in historic downtown Menomonie, Wisconsin, the Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater is a fully functional Victorian era theater. The Richardsonian Romanesque interior of the theater, built in 1889, has been restored to its original splendor by CSS. Extensive decorative painting to the lavish 313-seat "crown jewel" Victorian theater was the Studio's contribution to this restoration project. It is another premier example of CSS's commitment to restoring vintage American theaters with a year round performing arts season featuring nationally recognized artists.
