The Doudna Fine Arts Center is Eastern Illinois University's newest architectural landmark, designed by the internationally famous architect Antoine Predock. Predock is the winner of the 2006 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement and the 2007 Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum's Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Design.

This newly renovated and greatly expanded facility boasts several public arts venues: The Theatre which seats 300, the Black Box studio theatre, the 600-seat Dvorak Concert Hall, the 180-seat Recital Hall, the 150-seat Lecture Hall, and several corridor art galleries. The Doudna Fine Arts Center also houses EIU's departments of Art, Music and Theatre Arts, and the office of the Dean of Arts & Humanities.

But the Doudna Fine Arts Center is more than a facility. It is a full array of arts programming and special offerings for area schools. It is new and emerging artists as well as classical and time-honored idioms. It is high-tech and roots. It is inspiration, enjoyment, edification, and service. Programming includes the New and Emerging Artists Series, other series and performances, lectures, exhibitions, and related events.
