Supporting the McCain Lobby Expansion Project

Since 1970, McCain Auditorium has hosted music, theater and dance
performances from around the world, bringing a variety of cultural
experiences to Kansas State University students and the greater
Manhattan community.

The expansion will add onto the lobby, providing a modern and inviting
entry, more accessible spaces and much-needed patron amenities. In
addition, the expanded lobby will provide a space for collaborative arts
education and other campus and community engagement activities.

The arts, brought to K-State and the Manhattan community through
the McCain Performance Series, cross all boundaries — language,
cultural, educational, age, social — and bring a community together.
Please consider investing in our community by supporting the McCain
expansion project.
