Creative Arts Center

The Creative Arts Center is the home of the College of Creative Arts, which is comprised of the three academic units:

While each of these schools have been established for much of the 125 plus years of the University’s existence under various administrative structures it was only in 1968 that they were brought together as a performing and visual arts unit. On March 2, 1982 the academic units of the Creative Arts Center were recognized as the College of Creative Arts.

The existing facility is comprised of the performance areas:

  • Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre – 1397 seat Continental style theatre

  • Antoinette E. Falbo Theatre – 110 seat black box style theatre
  • Bloch Learning and Performance Hall – 155 seat recital hall
  • Vivian Davis Michael Laboratory Theatre – 50 seat theatre

Visual art exhibits are presented in the Paul and Laura Mesaros Galleries adjacent to the Douglas O. Blaney Lobby of the facility. The facility is further comprised by nine conventional classrooms, five computer labs, eight visual art studios, ceramics shops, sculpture shops, theatre wood and paint shops, theatre costume shop, dark rooms, dressing rooms, ensemble lab, movement lab, and private offices and studios for the 125 faculty and staff of the College.
