Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts exists to catalyze people’s creativity by engaging them in the dynamic work of diverse artists. Three inter-related activities enable the CFA to realize its purpose: supporting the research, public productions and in-studio teaching needs of the departments of Art and Art History, Dance, Music, and Theater; leading inter-disciplinary collaborations and other initiatives that integrate artists into creative curricular and co-curricular initiatives; and organizing powerful encounters between visiting artists and diverse elements of the Wesleyan community, the greater Middletown community, and statewide and regional audiences.  

The Center for the Arts' eleven-building complex on the Wesleyan campus opened in the fall of 1973 and includes the 400-seat Theater, the 260-seat Hall, the World Music Hall (a non-Western performance space), the 400-seat Crowell Concert Hall, the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, and classrooms and studios.
