Looking Ahead: A Conversation with the Center for the Arts

When/WhereTuesday, Jun 23, 2020 7:00pmOnline

On June 23, Adrienne Bryant Godwin, Director of Programming, and Rick Davis, Dean of Mason’s College of Visual and Performing Arts shared more about the decision to suspend the presentation of traditional, live, professional performances inside the Center for the Arts’ spaces through the end of 2020. The virtual conversation engaged in a discussion of the state of the arts, answering audience questions, submitted in advance or during the event.

This decision includes the Center for the Arts’ annual Great Performances at Mason Series, the Family Series, as well as external event rentals in the Concert Hall, Harris Theatre, the deLaski Performing Arts Building, and TheaterSpace. Although the Center’s 30th Anniversary season may not begin as originally planned, it is pursuing creative opportunities for digital programming, and exploring and safe and artistically satisfying options for in-person programming for the remainder of 2020.
