The UB Center for the Arts is the hub of a bustling arts community where dancers, actors, filmmakers, musicians, and artists of every imaginable stripe come to work and perform. Each Fall, the UBCFA opens our studios, rehearsal spaces, and doors to bring this wealth of creativity out into the open. The work of artists from UB College of Arts and Sciences will be showcased, with performances and activities curated and produced by UB students, faculty and staff from the departments of ArtArts ManagementUB Art GalleriesMedia StudyMusicTheatre and Dance and the Arts Collaboratory.
