Visual and Performing Arts are among CF’s most established and engaging traditions. VPA faculty and special programs offer students hands-on training and preparation for entrance to a variety of four-year, select admission programs.
VPA focus also includes a survey of the field and interaction with visiting artists and scholars which help to prepare students to enter the professional world of working artists and designers around the globe. The culmination of the students’ hard work is shared with the college and community through exhibits, performances and service learning activities.
Visual and Performing Arts also operates the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center, a state-of-the-art performing arts facility which hosts professional touring artists and serves as a performance space and training facility for our music and theatre students. The Webber Gallery, also under the auspices of VPA, enhances our students' experience in a way not found at many other colleges. The gallery exhibits and programs enhance CF curriculum and initiatives, as well as those which engage and inform the public.
