The Michigan Theatre was the last and largest theater to be built in downtown Jackson, opening in 1930. Now a nonprofit organization, the Michigan Theatre of Jackson Inc., is working to restore the theater to its original luster. It was originally built in Spanish Renaissance style with an ornate polychrome terra-cotta façade, carved walnut furniture, plush carpeting, heavy damask draperies, and stained-glass light fixtures. The Michigan Theatre is considered one of the most splendid theaters in the state. Their mission is to provide today's entertainment in an incredible historic venue. Events include kids movies, classic films, live theater and concerts.

The Theatre won a Preservation Gem Award from Michigan Architectural Foundation in 2012. The award is presented to an outstanding preservation project that includes restoration or rehabilitation of an element of a building, or of a structure or an object. It was awarded to the Michigan Theatre of Jackson for the Cupola Restoration. The cupola above the Mechanic Street Façade of the 1930 Michigan Theatre of Jackson was meticulously restored as part of a 20-plus year effort to rehabilitate the theatre.

Victory Reconstructed, by Richard Hunt, Corten Steel, 1995

Victory Reconstructed, much like Summer Night Tree, is an abstract and non-representational sculpture. Hunt's work is in many important public and private collections across the United States and it has even been included in a temporary exhibition on the lawn of the White House in Washington. Like many of Hunt’s statuary, Victory Reconstruction is based on figures of the ancient Greek goddess of victory, Nike. The sculpture fits nicely into its setting and people are able to see it from several different levels, from the ground as well as from the top floors of the Potter Center.

Jackson College

Jackson College is located on 500 acres in rural Jackson County, six miles south of the city. Originally established as Jackson Junior College in 1928, Jackson College offers several associate degrees, certificates, concentrations and skill sets, along with transfer and career training programs.
