Mulva Cultural Center

Vibrant, world-renowned arts and exhibits for all in historic downtown De Pere.

The Mulva Cultural Center, a 75,000-square-foot cultural destination, reflects its surrounding community. De Pere is where historic storefronts, contemporary infrastructure, a liberal arts college, a paper mill and the kinds of shops, restaurants and businesses that would make any American city proud coalesce—all near the shores of the river that first brought commerce to the city in the early 1800s.

And now, this community will showcase the finest traveling exhibits in the world within the architecturally significant Mulva Cultural Center.

Designed by famed SOM (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP), the Mulva Cultural Center will offer the ultimate in form and experience.

A premier cultural attraction, the Mulva Cultural Center is where history, culture and the arts will meet to inspire, engage and transform.

The Vision

The Mulva Cultural Center is the vision of James J. and Miriam B. Mulva, De Pere natives whose immense generosity will provide world-class cultural experiences for generations to come. The Mulvas envision the center to be a catalyst for community investment and an anchor for De Pere’s ongoing vitality.

The design, construction and operations of the Mulva Cultural Center are being financed by personal donations from the Mulvas or through grants from the Mulva Family Foundation and managed by the De Pere Cultural Foundation.
