Center for the Arts at George Mason University
Since the Center for the Arts opened in 1990, more than six million people have enjoyed brilliant performances by international touring artists and ensembles, as well as performances by students and faculty of the College of Visual and Performing Arts. The Center has hosted music, including more than 120 GRAMMY Award winners; dance, with premieres by Mark Morris Dance Group and Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, among others; and theater, including many leading touring companies. It not only brings top-level artists to perform but puts them in the classroom with Mason students and community members through its Artist-in-Residence Program. The Center is a cultural hub for the region, with its diverse and distinctive mix of the world’s finest artists and the rising stars of the next generation.
