Clowes Hall, which opened Oct. 18, 1963, was conceived by Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes and his wife, Edith Whitehill Clowes, as a center of culture and entertainment. More than 9 million people have seen the 10,000-plus performances in the 2,172-seat theater, which ranks among the top 100 theaters of its size in the world for number of tickets sold.

Clowes also serves as a centerpiece for pre-K-12 educational programming. Since 1991, education programs alone have brought nearly 800,000 preK-12 students to the hall, which was designed by famed Indianapolis architect Evans Woollen.
