The Suzie Cappa Art Center

Rapid City, South Dakota

The Suzie Cappa Art Center and its programs has been a success story for the fine people of Black Hills Works. It enabled Black Hills Works to move the Center to a new location.  As a combination of Retail Art Gallery plus  Teaching Center & Studio, downtown Rapid City was the perfect location to showcase the art work. Upper Deck Architects renovated an existing building in the historic district for the new Suzie Cappa Art Center. The space was opened up to expose the bow-truss roof system above and additional windows were added to the front of the building. The front façade was renovated to enhance the curb appeal. The dynamic space includes a gallery, work areas, prep areas, a mezzanine for offices and a covered parking area off the alley.
