In the redesigning and renovation of the center, the areas that were previously planned for trees were to be used to expand the sitting capacity and add tables. Also to be included in the new design were an outdoor café, a while new entrance leading into the Judy Morr Theater, an outdoor stage along Segerstrom Hall’s South Side, a green space as well as a circular grand staircase that extends from the plaza to the Segerstrom Hall’s Mezzanine Level.

The plaza is also set to be renamed to the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza, a name in appreciation of the patrons who made the largest donation of $13.5 million towards the project.

Renee and Henry Segerstrom

Renee and Henry Segerstrom are two people that have left an indelible mark in both business and philanthropy specifically in the arts. So profound was their contribution to the arts that they caused a change of name of the Orange County Performing Arts Center to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Henry Segerstrom, the husband to Renee, was born to a family of Swedish immigrants that practised agriculture and would at one point be the biggest producers of lima beans in the country.

Henry ventured into the study of Business Administration at the Stanford Business School, an event which was interrupted by World War II, after he joined in the war efforts.

He would rise to become managing partner of the family company which dealt mainly in retail management and real estate. He oversaw development of commercial property in Orange County, influencing in a great way the transition of the agricultural community to an international destination; the South Coast Plaza Center is one such successful family venture.

In the 1940’s and 50’s, there was significant interest in performance arts but not much public space to host performances. With the huge swathes of land the family owned in Orange County, Henry Segerstrom spearheaded the donation of five acres for the establishment of a cultural center that in total hosted three cultural institutions; the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

With continued expansion and modernisation generously donated to by Henry and Renee, the center would later on be renamed the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. As suggested by the name, it is primarily a performance complex named after the generosity of the Segerstrom family.

Aside from this center, their land and financial resources have also been donated towards the expansion of the Costa Mesa cultural complex and the South Coast Repertory’s Fourth Step Theatre complex.

Moreover, alongside the donations to establish and enhance the cultural centers, the Segerstroms also actively participated in the cultural activities of Orange County. Henry was a board member in a number of cultural institutions both in California and beyond. For instance, he was involved with the White Nights Foundation of America, the Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

While Renee was not ideally the face of the family’s business ventures, she was critical in driving their philanthropic agenda. She was actively involved in the Museum of Cultural Art of Santa Ana as well as the St Joseph Ballet. She also founded the Angels of the Arts, a women’s support group.

While both are now deceased, their names have definitely left a permanent mark in the landscape of performance arts in California and the larger United States. The Segerstrom family have been pivotal in showing that amassing wealth can indeed go hand in hand with developing communities.

With millions upon millions of tickets sold to revellers keen on enjoying different artistic performances held at the Segerstrom Hall alone, theirs is a legacy that will live in for a long time!

And just so you know, Renee Segerstorm was not just a passionate fashion icon; she was an avid oil painter who impressed many art patrons in Orange County!
