Watch How Art Gets Made

The UB Center for the Arts is the university’s arts hub, where UB students and WNY residents come for inspiration, entertainment and community. For over twenty-five years, we’ve been the place at UB where art gets made—and we believe the process is just as fascinating as the final presentation.

Attention! Calling All UB Artists!

Do you spend a good part of your day at the CFA? The odds are pretty good that you do.

We’d love to know what you’re working on. If you can spare a few minutes, stop and share with us. Take out your smartphone and give us a tour of your studio. Share a video of your latest work—or perform a piece you’ve been working on. There are no rules.  You’re artists, after all. You know how to keep things interesting.

When you’re done, email the video to or post it on Instagram and tag the @UBCFA and #UBuffalo. If we’re inspired, we’ll post it, too. Artists, musicians, dancers and performers need audiences. While UB’s venues aren’t filled, we’ll do our best to reach ours online!

Keep up the good work!
