Sustainability Plays a Leading Role in the Museum of Photographic Arts’ Theater Remodel

Written By: Kelly Hagarty

The Museum of Photographic Arts recently remodeled its Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater. Although theatergoers will be excited to experience the new state-of-the-art projector donated by Christie Digital and Las Patronas, it is the sustainability features that have the Balboa Park Sustainability Program delighted. When redesigning the updated theater, MOPA chose to use products and companies that have a lower impact on the environment.
