The Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center is celebrating its fifth year of creating memorable cultural experiences for West Texans.
Wagner Noel was created at first to be a home for UTPB's Music department.
Now the building has expanded to also giving West Texas a Grade A entertainment venue.
Lorraine Perryman, Chair of the Wagner Noel's Advising Board, said the building alone has united the community in a special way.
"We have raised millions of dollars that have been infused to the Permian Basin. We have provided jobs, we have enriched the arts availability in the Permian Basin more than any facility or activity that has ever been done in Odessa or Midland."
Perryman added Wagner Noel has also played a huge role of bringing the arts, theatre and culture to the Permian Basin.
