The Center for Visual Arts (CVA)

Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the CVA houses the UT Department of Art and the office of the College of Communication and the Arts on the campus of The Toledo Museum of Art. Studio and art education classrooms, a Digital Studio and the Haigh Auditorium offer state of the art spaces for visual arts instruction.

The large windows and skylights of the architecture, provide the interior with dramatic lighting, while also providing exciting views across exterior space to other portions of the building. The CVA Gallery is the home of student, faculty and visiting artist art exhibitions throughout the year.

The Center for Performing Arts (CPA)

The Center for Performing Arts building exterior summer

The CPA houses the Department of Music and the Department of Theatre and Film, and received a major renovation during the summer of 2011.  Music performances take place in the newly renovated Recital Hall, and expanded band and choral rooms serve the needs of small and large classes and ensemble rehearsals. 

Theatre productions take place primarily in the Center Theatre several times a year, and fully equipped scenic and costume shops serve as teaching and production spaces for students and staff.  The Lab Theatre has been renovated into a dedicated Film/Video studio space, and all three areas utilize specialized computer labs for hands-on student learning and application.
