Underwood Center
The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, 511 Ave. K, is one of Lubbock's newest landmarks, although planning and building for the facility began in 1997.

Formerly known as the Lubbock Regional Arts Center, it currently occupies a site that was the home of the Lubbock Fire Department's administration offices, a dairy and a maintenance garage.

The Underwood Center is available and affordable to local artists to facilitate their skills through education, performance and exhibition for the citizens of the South Plains.

Louise Hopkins Underwood and Neal Hanslik were the driving forces in creating the center.

The center provides office, studio, meeting, exhibit, workshop, rehearsal and performance space for emerging and established arts organizations.

Since moving into its main building, the Firehouse, in December 2000, the center annually serves more than 25,000 individuals.
