Center for the Visual and Performing Arts



The Center for the Visual and Performing Arts was formed to provide a vital link between Bloomsburg University and the Bloomsburg Community through its downtown locations. Each year, the Center offers programs from the Departments of Art and Art History, English and Music, Theatre and Dance to celebrate the arts and support the connection between the university and our broader community. Featured events include Arts in Autumn and Taste of the Arts, both of which bring together all of the representative arts programs of the university in an extended collaborative event.

Events

The Center for Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) will host its first ever symposium “Breaking Ground: Building Careers through the Arts,” on Thursday, March 17, 2016. This biennial symposium will start with a keynote speaker 9:30am in Carver Hall and will include various alumni panels throughout the day. The day’s events will conclude with a second keynote speaker at 5:15pm at the Gallery at Greenly Center, followed by a reception for an exhibition of our alumni panelists.

The CVPA was formed to provide a vital link between Bloomsburg University and the surrounding community. The goal of the symposium is to help students in Art, Art History, English Creative Writing, Mass Communications, Music, Dance and Theatre understand how their arts education can develop into a career and be a part of their life after graduation.

Faculty are welcome and encouraged to bring their classes to the speakers and panel discussions. More information about the panels and speakers to follow.
