Artist, Audience & Community LIVE!


Now celebrating it’s 16th season, Artist Audience & Community Live! began as the 801 Concert Series, founded by locals Dick Renko and John McIntosh, in the same great space where we are today. Our mission is to provide excellence and diversity in the performing and visual arts for the citizens and visitors of the Arkansas River Valley.  By serving artists, audiences and the community we improve our quality of place by leaving a legacy of arts and culture for many generations to come.

Artists love to appear and exhibit in galleries and theaters where their needs have been anticipated and met. We serve Audiences by presenting an eclectic mix of musical artists recognized nationally and internationally in genres that include World Music, Jazz, Americana, Blues, Bluegrass, Folk, as well as Spoken Word, Children’s and Family programming. We serve the Community by sharing this talent beyond the stage at our theater. Our ongoing educational and outreach programs span generations – from elementary school to senior citizens.

Artist, Audience & Community Live! offers a non–smoking intimate theater atmosphere, as well as an affordable and accessible unique experience and cultural value for the community that is typically only available in larger cities.
