The Region’s Premier Arts Venue

The renovated and expanded Towson University Center for the Arts creates an artistic village on the Towson campus where students work together and mingle across disciplines and art forms. As the premier arts venue in Baltimore County, it provides you access to the school’s graduate-level studio areas, including the Holtzman M.F.A. Gallery, designated solely for graduate students to exhibit their work throughout the year. The center also offers exciting and cutting-edge artworks, musical and theatre performances and festivals, and the Asian Arts & Culture Center. An Art Lecture Series brings noted speakers to the Towson campus.
