Arts in Bloom

Arts in Bloom at Bloomsburg University


Arts in Bloom celebrates the value of the arts and enriches lives throughout our community by producing and promoting a robust performing and visual arts program at Bloomsburg University.  The energy of robust university arts programming attracts students to our university and citizens to our town and region, and it unites them.

The series is comprised of high-caliber professional touring headliners as well as performances and exhibits by Bloomsburg University’s resident producers. 

  • Arts in Bloom seeks to inspire audiences throughout our community and provide aspirational experiences to students seeking a professional future in the arts.
  • Arts in Bloom uses the transformative power of the arts to build on and cultivate relationships across our diverse community.
  • Arts in Bloom creates access to cultural experiences that nurture personal and professional growth and fosters a supportive atmosphere for students and their creativity.

Fall 2020 Announcement:

Dear Patrons,

At this time of year, I would typically have the privilege of sending to you the Arts in Bloom season brochures for the upcoming 2020-21 academic year here at Bloomsburg University. But as we all know, nothing about this spring has been normal.

As our country and university have grappled with Coronavirus, the performing arts have been hit especially hard. Because we have worked diligently over the past two years to move Arts in Bloom to a self-sustaining, financially secure model, I am pleased to say that the program is well-positioned for success. However, the program’s income relies on a combination of ticket sales, sponsorships from generous patrons like many of you, and student attendance — none of which is guaranteed in the coming year. Moreover, the safety and health of our patrons, sponsors, and students must always come first.

For those reasons, we have reached the point where we have made several difficult decisions relating to the upcoming season:
• The university will not hold any Arts in Bloom headliners for the Fall 2020 semester.
• Ticket sales for planned spring 2021 headliners will not begin until Nov. 1, 2020, at the earliest.
• The 2020-21 season brochure — which is inclusive of academic, resident producer events — will be delayed until late summer.

We do not take these steps lightly, but they are essential to ensuring that Arts in Bloom can continue to bring the performing and visual arts to our community long into the future. Additionally, we are revising season sponsorship package options to reflect the reduced number of headliners. As we launch a modified season, your financial support is more crucial than ever. Information on how you can continue to be part of the mission of bringing robust arts programming to our community and students will be available later this summer along with the adjusted season brochure.

Lastly, please know that the suspension of headliners does not mean the suspension of Arts in Bloom. BU students are the true heart of Arts in Bloom, and while we do not yet know exactly how the fall semester will look, we will continue to bring their talents to you in any way possible.

Thank you for your continued support, and please reach out anytime.
