The University will celebrate the opening of the Lewis arts complex with a Festival of the Arts Oct. 5-8 that features dozens of performances, exhibitions, workshops, and other events. “We’re having a party for the arts, and we hope to offer something for everyone!” said Michael Cadden, chair of the Lewis Center for the Arts.

The arts complex, located along Alexander Street south of McCarter Theatre, includes the Wallace Dance Building and Theater, an arts tower with administrative offices and studios, and a building with instructional and research facilities for the music department. 

Events will take place at locations across campus, and most are free. The festival includes concerts, plays, readings, performance walks, an opera for electric guitar, dance events, and the biennial Princeton Poetry Festival. For details, go to:
