The Center for the Arts welcomes audiences back in person for Art in the Open, a free event on Oct. 28 showcasing the music, dance, theater, film and visual art that is made at UB.

Doors will be open from 5-9 p.m. for guests to explore and see a variety of art in action and on display.

The CFA is the home for UB’s arts community, where dancers, actors, filmmakers, musicians and artists come to create and perform. Guests will have the opportunity to listen to live music, watch films, tour studio and lab spaces, view art gallery exhibitions and watch theater and dance open rehearsals. 

“Seeing all of the creative activity in the open highlights UB’s vast offering of programs and the artistry of our students and faculty,” says Jamie Enser, executive director of the Center for the Arts. “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.

Art in the Open will include performances and activities curated and produced by UB students, faculty and staff from the departments of Art, Media Study, Music, Theatre and Dance, the Arts Management Program, UB Art Galleries and the Arts Collaboratory. Guests can meet artists and enjoy refreshments in the CFA atrium.
