The Center for the Arts is where art is made at the University at Buffalo.
Though we host events and exhibitions throughout the year, we’re more than a performance space. We’re an arts hub, where UB student and faculty artists and performers can find inspiration, education and community.
Visit us to find out what happens behind the scenes. All are welcome!

“This will be the first truly public art piece I’ve ever worked on, and the first time I’ve worked with a team, and I could not be more excited” says Cecily. “Buffalo is such a vibrant and interesting place and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved with something that will become part of the fabric of the city.”
Cecily Brown, painter
“We have a unique opportunity this semester to breathe new life into Center for the Arts, which is always as its most electric when there are dancers in motion within its walls,”
Michael Deeb Weaver, co-director, adjunct instructor, UB alumnus
“Bringing creative minds together results in great art and big ideas. All too often, the arts exist in their own separate bubbles. The goal of the Arts Collaboratory’s Show Your Work exhibition at the UBCFA is to introduce UB and Buffalo’s painters, poets, dancers and creators to each other—and gather this city’s artists into one big community.”
Bronwyn Keenan, Director of the Arts Collaboratory
