Party Plainer at the Orpheum Theater and MoVM
The Plain Green Conference is held at the Historic Orpheum Theater in downtown Sioux Falls. Since opening in 1913, the Orpheum Theater has hosted vaudeville, plays, concerts, and other community events. Known for its superb acoustics, the theater receives over 100,000 visitors each year.
Historic Orpheum Theater:
The theater consists of three sections: the south section, formally the “Rainbow Bar,” now houses the Anne Zabel Studio Theater and the City’s Channel 16 studios. The center section comprises front and back “links” joining the two older buildings together to create a new lobby space, set space, and a courtyard theater. The north section comprises the restored and enhanced 660 seat Orpheum Theater, office and conference space.
Museum of Visual Materials:
The 2012 Plain Green Opening Party will be held at the Museum of Visual Materials also in downtown Sioux Falls. Originally the home of Consolidated Tank Line, this native quartzite structure built in the 1880's had been abused and abandoned. Restored to house the Museum of Visual Materials, an interactive learning facility, it features functional yet flexible display and gathering spaces with refurbished hardwood floors and custom display furniture using "found" materials.
The Museum of Visual Materials is South Dakota's first LEED Platinum Building.
