Great Hall - Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center
University of Northern Iowa
Cedar Falls, IA
Design of the Great Hall was inspired by the great European opera houses and features three levels that include opera boxes and a curved mezzanine. My primary memories of our visit were lighting equipment problems caused by a lightning strike earlier in the week and by the ubiquity of small beetles that had been introduced in previous years as natural predators to protect the area's corn plants.
