The Performing Arts Center at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is the original home of arts and cultural programming in Southern Nevada. Located on the northeast corner of the university campus, the center is normally bustling with activity nearly every day of the year.
During the pandemic-related closures, we kept the lights on and livestreamed the talents of students from the College of Fine Arts; then, we were one of the first venues in Las Vegas to open our doors to the public and partnered with the UNLV School of Music to present some of the first-in person concerts in more than a year.
In the Spring of 2022 and continuing into our 46th season (2022-23), we’ve relaunched traditional in-person programming and continued to add educational activities to the schedules of the artists that visit and perform for us. In Spring 2022, classical guitarists Johan Smith and The Romeros Quartet have and will work with students of UNLV’s guitar program–offering them the chance to learn from some of the best in the world. Our 2022-2023 season will be full of amazing opportunities for students from around the valley to learn.
The UNLV Performing Arts Center also assists other departments within the College of Fine Arts with their educational programs for Clark County School Students, including student matinees offered by the Nevada Conservatory Theatre and Dance Day offered by the UNLV Department of Dance.
