City of Evansville

The new Evansville Arena located in the heart of downtown is the region’s center for sports and entertainment, designed to host basketball, hockey, concerts, exhibitions and shows for audiences as large as 11,000. This attraction will create a vibrant atmosphere for sports fans, music lovers and conventioneers.

VPS coordinated the interior details and finishes for the Arena project.  The inspiration for the interior came from the natural elements; water, stone, and wood. All represent many of the natural resources and features found in Southern Indiana.

The finishes are not only durable and environmentally friendly, they also represent a part of the way finding and organizational system of the arena as a whole. We were part of a team led by Populous.
