From its very beginning, The Smith Center was envisioned as a world-class performing arts center that would develop and present the best and brightest in a broad range of first-rate programming and unite the residents of our community.

This cultural complex enables Southern Nevada to take its place on an international stage, celebrating artistic excellence, education and culture from around the world.
