Inside the Emerson

Public Space

Refined yet relaxed, sophisticated yet welcoming, traditional yet modern, the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture has three venues for civic engagements and personal milestones. Whether it be a wedding reception in the Ballroom, a performance in the Crawford Theater, or a poetry reading in the Weaver Room, the Emerson has had the honor of hosting community events for decades. We would be thrilled to take part in your next civic service, celebration, or ceremony!
