BEL AIR, Md. (AP) — An architect who guided restorations of New York’s Radio City Music Hall and Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre is unveiling designs for Harford County’s new $60 million Center for the Arts.

The Baltimore Sun reports architect Hugh Hardy revealed his designs Tuesday in Bel Air. He says it will be a community center with various cultural spaces.

The plans call for a building that can accommodate theater, dance, music, visual arts and education programs. It will include a 1,200-seat theater, a 400-seat theater, a black box theater, art galleries and a museum of county history.

Organizers hope to open it by 2018. Construction will be funded with a combination of county, state and private dollars.

Maryland native Emily Bayless Graham donated land to the county to build a cultural center.
