Welcome to the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center!
This magnificent space is an achievement that is nearly four-and-a-half decades in the making. It is a product of vision, patience, and ultimately, generosity and collaboration.
Five administrations, hundreds of donors, thousands of students and a city joined forces to create this magnificent facility. It is often said that success has many parents, and this project is a perfect example.
South Dakota State University has a rich tradition in the arts. It now has a state-of-the-art facility that those programs in music, theatre and dance deserve.
On behalf of the entire university, I want to thank everyone that made this facility possible.
