Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is located at 701 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach in Florida. It was opened with the mission of providing a home to Palm Beach County local and regional organizations to showcase their works as well as presenting the diverse schedule of national and international artists for the recreation of the people.
It has also started to offer a comprehensive Arts Education programs. Ever since it has been opened it has become an economic catalyst in the revitalization of West Palm Beach by its supporting efforts to increase travel and tourism to Palm Beach County.
Kravis Center was opened to the anxiously awaited community in September of 1992. The Center hosted a dedication week on its Gala Grand Opening on November 28 and hosted a full week of free performances featuring local arts and groups like Florida Philharmonic Orchestra, Burt Reynolds, Roberta Peters, Isaac Stern, Leontyne Price, Ella Fitzgerald, Faith Prince, Lily Tomlin and The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
More than 2,000 guests attended the spectacular event along with one of the largest national and foreign press corps to ever cover an arts center opening.
The center was built with the efforts of Alexander W. Dreyfoos, then chairman and president of Photo Electronics Corporation WPEC TV-12, and Judith Goodman, an executive with Mr. Dreyfoos' firm.
The funds were raised for building of the center. In 1986, came a multimillion dollar contribution that shifted fundraising efforts into high-gear. A consortium of friends of Oklahoma native Raymond F. Kravis, a prominent geologist and philanthropist who wintered with his wife Bessie in Palm Beach, agreed to raise $5 million in Mr. Kravis' honor.
The gift served as a major catalyst to the private fundraising campaign and inspired the Center's official name. By the time the center opened to the public in 1992, contributions in Mr. Kravis' honor totaled over $10 million.
Blount, Inc., the New Orleans Superdome, was chosen as the construction company that would build the Center. Blount began the 36 month construction schedule in September of 1989.
They were joined by New York-based Artec Consultants' Russell Johnson, who designed the pristine acoustics of the main concert hall.
In addition, Robert Metzger Interiors, also based in New York, brought a '40s Moderne motif to everything from the carpeting and furniture to the colors of the marble. The center was constructed at a cost of $63 million. It sits on 10.6 acres of property at the highest point in the city.
Kravis Center has an Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall with the seating capacity of 2,193 occupants and main performance venue located in the center of the building.
There is a black box theater Rinker Playhouse with the seating capacity of 300 seats. In Kravis Center there is located an outdoor amphitheater by the name of Gosman Amphitheater.
