A booming arts & culture community
For the artsy type
Let's get creative.
Joplin has always been a creative community, and our growing arts and cultural scene is the perfect place for new and established artists and performers. From monthly art walks and locally owned galleries to our Downtown Arts District, there’s something for anyone who wants to get artsy.
The Harry M. Cornell Arts & Entertainment Complex is the newest addition to our arts and cultural community. It features a 450-seat indoor performance hall, an outdoor amphitheater, and a new home for Spiva Center for the Arts and Connect2Culture.
