At Large with G. Michael Dobbs:
Brian Hale of the Bing Arts Center

Brian Hale is the executive director of the Bing Arts Center located at 716 Sumner Avenue in Springfield’s Forest Park neighborhood. The Bing Arts Center is a multi-use hub for community cultural and artistic activity. The former Bing Theater opened in 1950 and served several generations of area residents until 1999 when it was taken by the City of Springfield for non-payment of taxes. The X Main Street Corporation a non-profit, purchased the property from the City in 2004 to create a catalyst for economic development and improved quality of life. The adaptive re-use of the building has created a place to enable citizens of Springfield and the Pioneer Valley to actively participate in a variety of artistic expressions.
