We welcomed audiences back at this annual event that showcases music, dance, theatre, film and visual art that is made at UB. “Seeing all of the creative activity in the open highlights UB’s vast offering of programs and the artistry of our students and faculty. Art in the Open is an invitation for everyone, both the UB and Western New York communities, to come and explore the incredible artistic work that is created here.” – Jamie M.
