5.4.7 Arts Center, Greensburg, KS

The 5.4.7 Arts Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of both visual and performing arts and providing an environment to create and learn through exhibits, performances and classes. As the only public arts center between Wichita and Dodge City, it serves as an important regional resource for contemporary art in Southwestern Kansas.

The Center’s name comes from the date on which a Category 5 tornado devastated nearly all of Greensburg on May 4, 2007. After the tornado, the community made the decision to designate art as an essential part of the city’s social and economic redevelopment by choosing to build 5.4.7 Arts Center as its first public building.
