The Center for Visual and Performing Arts is the area’s premier venue for the arts that offers an elegant setting for weddings, parties and business meetings. Here, events are transformed into works of art with unparalleled service and sumptuous food.

Supporting the cultural and educational needs of the community for more than 20 years, the CVPA is conveniently located along historic Ridge Road in Munster, only 25 miles from downtown Chicago. The completely handicapped accessible facility is surrounded by gardens and scenic Bieker Woods. A magnificent illuminated water fountain marks the main entrance and sheltered auto port.
