Arts and culture

 

 

 

 


Fairfield is home to the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center (FACC), a 32,000 square feet (3,000 m2) building that cost $6 million to build. The complex consists of a 522-seat proscenium theatre, a business pavilion, meeting rooms, executive conference suite, art gallery, commercial kitchen, offices and outdoor plaza. Theconvention center features 7,700 sq ft (720 m2) of exhibition space and 5,000 square feet (460 m2) of meeting space. The facility opened on December 7, 2007 with a theater named the Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts, after the American composer, Stephen Sondheim As the first theater named after Sondheim, its opening production included seven Broadway actors connected with Sondheim's plays. In May 2010, the FACC facility became "essentially" city-owned, following a citywide vote.

On the first Friday night of every month, Fairfield hosts the 1st Fridays Art Walk, which attracts more than 2,500 visitors and showcases local and national artists in downtown galleries and occasional live, outdoor music. In 2005, the city's Friday Art Walk was named Iowa's Tourism Event of the Year. In 2006, the city was named one of the "12 Great Places You've Never Heard Of" by Mother Earth News magazine, which cited its notable health spa and high number of restaurants and art galleries. It characterized the city as a "sustainable and cosmopolitan town". In the same year, the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs designated Fairfield as one of the Iowa Great Places.

In 2009, a concert by The Beach Boys and The Nadas was held on the Fairfield Middle School grounds, as a benefit for the FACC and the city's Green Sustainability Plan. The concert was sponsored by the David Lynch Foundation. This was the 40th, and final performance of The Beach Boy's summer tour of 2009. Fairfield was selected by the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs to be one of six Iowa Great Places to participate in new program to revitalize the cultural arts in 2010.

Fairfield has been described as an "international center" for Transcendental Meditation; a "national magnet" and "the world's largest training center" for practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation technique. Many of its current residents moved there to participate in the group practice of the TM and TM-Sidhi program inside one of the two golden domes built in 1981 and 1982 on the Maharishi University of Management campus. Locally, TM practitioners are sometimes called "roos", slang for gurus, a term they have appropriated, although they "refer to themselves as meditators". Fairfield natives are sometimes known as "townies". Yogic Flyers living in Fairfield who are not part of the university are said to be members of the "Town Super Radiance" (TSR) community. In 2004, National Public Radio reported that "after 30 years, many in Iowa are comfortable with Fairfield's TM community and a 2008 article in the Wall Street Journal said "natives lived uneasily with the outsiders...but the election of Mr. Malloy [in 2001]... helped ease those tensions".

Author Jack Forem wrote in 2012 that Fairfield is home to one of the largest synagogues in Iowa and one of the largest Liberal Catholic Churches in the nation.That year Oprah Winfrey visited Fairfield to interview citizens and was given a tour the town. An account of her visit titled "America's Most Unusual Town", was broadcast in March 2012 via the Oprah Winfrey Network.

In 2013 Fairfield was named by Smithsonian magazine as one of "The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2013"  and was visited by actor Jim Carrey, who visited again in 2014. Past celebrity visitors include film director David Lynch, singer-songwriter Donovan, musician Moby, musician James McCartney psychiatry professor Norman E. Rosenthal, CNN correspondent Candy Crowley, and actor Jim Carrey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parks and recreation

 

 

 


Fairfield has 12 public parks and recreation areas consisting over 1,300 acres (over 5.5 km2) and a "master trail plan" underway that includes a 17-mile (27 km) trail system. Some of the trail is paved, five miles (8 km) of trail is covered with lime chips while other areas include traditional wooded paths. The trail system connects several areas of interest including the Neff Family Wetlands dike, and the BNSF Trail segment, which crosses a new bridge that joins Walton Lake with Chautauqua Park. The final trail plan includes a "heritage path" leading to historical sites and a water trail that connects the area's river and three lakes. In 2012, Fairfield was selected" as one of ten finalists" in the Blue Zones community, "small city category" primarily because of its "many walking trails and outdoor activities". In 2015 Fairfield was named a certified Blue Zones Community®

The Fairfield Community School District is home to nearly 2,500 students, teachers, administrators and staff, with three elementary schools (Pence Elementary, Washington Elementary, and Libertyville Elementary), a middle school, and a 3A high school. The high school has approximately 630 students and 75 staff members. The current high school building was built in 1939 on 23.2 acres (94,000 m2). The total cost of the construction was approximately $550,000. In 1984, an addition to the school provided a commons area, new library, new kitchen, a counseling office, and an expansion of the gymnasium. In the 2001-2002 school year, the district added a new transportation building.

In 2010, Lincoln Elementary school was closed due to budget cuts. Also, all fifth grade classes were moved to the Fairfield Middle School. The Fairfield school board voted to use the building for Fairfield High School's alternative school in 2010-11. Fairfield was also home to Fairfield Christian School for a number of years.

Fairfield also has two private schools, Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment and Cornerstone Primary School. The city is home to Maharishi University of Management (MUM), a private university that moved to Fairfield in 1974 after purchasing the former campus of Parsons College. Following a national conference held in 1979, about 800 people moved to Fairfield at the urging of MUM's founder
