Woodstock site to be arts center

July 23, 2004|From Associated Press

Ground was broken this week for a performing arts and music center on the site of the Woodstock Festival, the legendary summer of 1969 celebration of "peace, love and music" that attracted hundreds of thousands to rural upstate New York.

When completed in 2006, the $63-million center, christened the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, will be the first permanent structure to be erected on the site. It will feature a 4,800-person indoor seating theater that can hold another 12,000 spectators on the lawn.
