The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a new look and year-long community celebration.

CAPA was established in 1969 to save the Ohio Theatre from demolition. The non-profit performing arts organization now manages 10 central Ohio entertainment venues, including the Palace, and the Southern and Lincoln Theatres. The organization also presents Broadway in Columbus and produces Festival Latino.

CAPA chose Fechtor Advertising to handle the rebranding process, which includes a new logo, color palette and tagline: “Living, breathing art.”

The organization’s year-long celebration will include discounted tickets during its classic film series, free theatre open house tours, and a free concert singalong on Sunday, March 17 at the Ohio Theatre.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate CAPA’s many achievements over the last 50 years and to share our exciting vision for the future,” said CAPA president and CEO Chad Whittington. “We are thrilled to commemorate this important milestone by thanking the community that has made it all possible through their incredible generosity and support.”
