ABOUT SPAV AND 52 SUMNER: Springfield Performing Arts Ventures Inc., is a nonprofit organization that uses 52 Sumner as its performance and event venue. This new venue found its home in a portion of Faith United Church, a 125-year-old landmark that had recently come on the market amid declining church membership in Springfield, MA.

THE MISSION OF SPAV: To spark the artistic spirit within the urban community, providing a haven for creative expression, cultural enrichment, and personal growth through the arts. After more than a year’s work renovating the building and install a new sound and lighting system, 52 Sumner officially opened earlier this year.
