About the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts:
The Patricia Reser Center for the Arts will be the first performing arts center of its kind to be built in the Portland-metro area in more than 30 years. The idea was first conceived in the late 90’s by then-City Councilor and now current Mayor of Beaverton Denny Doyle. After years of championing this dream and vision, Mayor Doyle found an ally and kindred spirit in local business leader and philanthropist Pat Reser.
The formal process of conceiving and planning the center began in 2004. Since then numerous feasibility studies, community surveys, and public meetings have consistently demonstrated community support for building an arts center in Beaverton. Today the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts is a key component of the long-range Beaverton Community Vision Action Plan.
