The Engberg Anderson Design Partnership team of architects and interior designers provided the "lodge in the park" design to place the arts and your special event in a natural setting. Sited at the edge of the woods in the heart of Brookfield's Mitchell Park, the Wilson Center includes a 619-seat performance theater, Grand Hall with a soaring 40-foot limestone fireplace, sculpture garden, art gallery, music and art classrooms, a dance studio, and a performance studio. An outdoor terrace provides a natural setting for al fresco performances. A park pavilion shelters pre-concert receptions; patrons will find ample, on-site parking.
A Home for the Arts
Several professional arts groups have made the Wilson Center their permanent home for outreach programs in the Waukesha County area–Danceworks, Milwaukee Art Museum, First Stage Theater Academy and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music.
Other partners such as the School District of Elmbrook are taking advantage of opportunities to attract new patrons and students with a variety of spaces under one roof.
Permanent Art in and around the building
Wisconsin artists were selected to create works of art that are integrated into the building's design, adding to the warm and welcoming ambiance. Two other works of art were donated to the Center by generous benefactors. more
