Welcome to the College of Visual and Performing Arts

Serving as one of the most active and significant cultural centers in Western New York, we shape the future of the arts by training the next generation of artists and arts advocates. Our outstanding faculty and staff work together every day to create excellence in research; to present the finest in the visual and performing arts from the local to the international levels; and to engage our students and audiences as participants in the creation of the best the arts have to offer. View our calendar of events, browse our departmental web sites, and come for a visit. Feel free to contact me directly for more information. 

Construction on the Rockefeller Arts Center expansion continues!  Take a look as we prepare for five additional art studios, a new scenic paint shop, three more dance studios, two more acting classrooms and a cafe.  See our progress at
