The Ohnward Fine Arts Center located in Maquoketa, Iowa, and is now in its 11th season. The theater consists of 841 seats. The Ohnward Fine Arts Center was built and designed for the local schools to use for their concerts, both vocal and instrumental, as well as plays, musicals and even some assemblies. Maquoketa is blessed to have such a wonderful facility. Many rural communities would never have an opportunity to appreciate what the Ohnward Fine Arts Center means to this area.
It is now time to replace the roof on the entire building. I know this does not seem like a glamorous fundraiser, but it must be done!
