Hancock Lumber’s Community Gift to Denmark Arts Center

The Denmark Arts Center (DAC) originated 25 years ago from the foresight of a few. A small group of community members in 1994 saw a need for increased access to the arts in Denmark. An opportunity arose and they purchased an old building destined for a ‘practice burn’ and got to work. This cohort of ‘movers and shakers’ invested their time and money, renovated the old Odd Fellows building, and created programs in which the community could participate, have fun, and be entertained. After 134 years of community use and a decade in between of decay and derelict, the building received another renovation with the support from the community and local businesses.

This season the local businesses confirmed Denmark Arts Center’s positive contribution to the community through their backing. The DAC received a facelift with the wonderful funding and hard work of Hancock Lumber, McIver Electric, Kackley Carpentry, Andy Narducci, and Hayes True Value Har
