Built in the early 1970′s, the Tulsa Performing Arts Center features four permanent theaters. The Center’s largest space, the Chapman Music Hall, accomodates an audience of over 2,000. The center itself doesn’t offer a season, but instead rents its facilities to locally based arts organizations, nationally recognized visiting talent, and others. The Tulsa PAC also has a well appointed art gallery with a permanent collection of more than 70 pieces.
