Completion of Riverside Community College District's Centennial Plaza in downtown Riverside in March 2016 marked the debut of a major arts, cultural and education resource for our region. Lifestyle, arts, and social awareness are key features of the Plaza, tied together by quality higher education and career prep programs that provide economic, intellectual and creative opportunities and experiences for students and the general public.
Henry W. Coil, Sr. and Alice Edna Coil School for the Arts
The Henry W. Coil, Sr. & Alice Edna Coil School for the Arts showcases education and
performances. Amidst the state-of-the-art instrumental labs, recording rooms, and classrooms, it is the city's first mid-size concert hall, suitable for individual artists, quartets, ensembles or even full orchestras. The soaring two-story, pitch-perfect space seats 450 guests, and accommodates a wide range of performing arts.

The RCC Culinary Arts Academy offers professional quality demonstration and teaching kitchens, a bakery, classrooms, and a public dining room where Culinary students can gain experience and the community can sample delicious fare. The three-story building also houses key district offices, and features a unique rooftop garden setting.

The Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties is already a popular stop for professional groups,
educators and the public during special open days and scheduled tours. The Center is home to the Mine Okubo Collection, an inaugural Riverside Stories historical civil rights exhibition, multi-media archives, and a children's education zone.
