About the UMass Fine Arts Center
The UMass Fine Arts Center seeks to engage and inspire the campus and regional communities in the arts through a broad array of exemplary performances, exhibitions, and educational programs. Since our founding in 1975, the UMass Fine Arts Center has been a central force in the cultural, social and academic life of the university, the Five Colleges, and the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. The Fine Arts Center’s combination of educational, visual, and performing arts programs not only makes us distinct, but also secures a vital and necessary position for us to meet the diverse needs of scholars, faculty, students, alumni and the broader community. We offer a variety of stellar arts and education programs that create a unique delivery service for the arts with many points of entry. We provide a variety and depth of experiences that touch the lives of students from the University of Massachusetts and the Five Colleges, as well as the campus and regional communities. Each program engages its audience with a curatorial vision appealing to individuals and groups both on and off campus. These programs fulfill the Center’s mission by providing affordable access to high quality arts programming and engaging in public service that advances knowledge and improves lives.

In a year-long consultative and deeply collaborative process with respected advisors from local Tribal Nations, the UMass Native Advisory Council co-developed this campus Land Acknowledgement. This Acknowledgement affirms our campus connection and relationship to the land the campus is built upon and our continued connection to the Nations who were the original inhabitants and caretakers of this land.
