The Harry M. Cornell Arts & Entertainment Complex

A booming arts & culture community

Visual arts & Music

Our art scene features a wide range of visual and performing arts. We have downtown art galleries that feature local artists as well as galleries that showcase artists from around the world.

And Joplin’s growing music scene has something for everyone, too! From Broadway favorites performed on the stage of the Cornell Complex to open-air classical performances and indie bands at our local concert house, Joplin blends old-fashioned favorites with modern tastes to create our own unique sound.
