The Temple for Performing Arts | Des Moines

Marked as one of the "most endangered" historic buildings by the National Historical Registry, The Temple For Performing Arts was given new life with renovations completed in October of 2002.

Downtown Preservation Partners, the developer of The Temple for Performing Arts, assembled a restoration team composed of builders, architects and subcontractors experienced in historic rehabilitation.

In its pre-renovation state, the building had been stripped of its original cornice and awnings, and nearly all of the exterior windows had fallen into a state of disrepair. While the real jewel of The Temple has always been the interior architecture, the renovation architects worked diligently to restore the outside of the building to its original state as well.

Planners, entertainers and promoters can rent facilities such as the Grand Hall, Recital Hall and Performance Hall where receptions, weddings, concerts and meetings can be held. Cutting edge audio-visual facilities, catering and entertainment can all be tailored to one's specific tastes and theme.
