About the Curtis Center for the Arts
Originally built as a one-room schoolhouse in 1914 to serve ten local students, the historic brick building is now home to the Curtis Center for the Arts. The Curtis School was formally opened in 1914 with no electricity or running water. The one acre of land the school sat on was originally donated by area resident Mary J. Curtis in 1901. In 1991 the building was dedicated as the Curtis Arts & Humanities Center. Today, the Curtis Center continues to be a learning center for the arts. The Center offers art instruction, rotating visual arts exhibits, lectures and the occasional performance. The Curtis Center for the Arts is owned and operated by the City of Greenwood Village.
