    Series and Programming

    Each year, the Lively Arts presents nearly 200 performing and visual arts events through its Ovations! and College of Fine Art’s I❤IUP programming that also includes the Department of Music’s Sound Choices series. Dance, theater, music, and art are well represented, with Ovations! bringing world-renowned performances to our local stages and the I❤IUP series presenting all the incredible performances of our students, faculty, and their guests. Members or the various ensembles of the IUP Community Music School also perform at the end of each semester.

    Educational Outreach

    With each of its Ovations events, the Lively Arts provides an outreach activity through its ArtsPath program. In addition, ArtsPath provides artist residencies to communities and schools within a five-county area, reaching over 5,000 students in the region beyond the performances and exhibits it offers.
