The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts (UBCFA) will present “Art in the Open” a free, annual event, showcasing the music, dance, theatre, film and visual art that is made at UB.

On Oct. 27, from 5 -7:30 p.m., doors will be open for guests to explore and see a variety of art in action and on display in the UBCFA, the hub of a bustling arts community where dancers, actors, filmmakers, musicians and artists come to create and perform. The event offers the opportunity for visitors to meet students and faculty to learn about UB’s rich offering of art programs and the creativity its departments bring to the campus and community.

Areas of the UBCFA will be alive where guests will have the opportunity to listen to live music; view films; tour studio and lab spaces; view art gallery exhibitions; see works in progress and drop in theatre and dance rehearsals. The event will conclude with two performances at 7:30 p.m. – “Bridget Moser: When I am Through With You There Won’t be Anything Left” by the UB Art Galleries, and “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” by the Department of Theatre and Dance.
