For more than 30 years, the Weis Center has presented world-class artists to Bucknell University and Central Pennsylvania audiences.
In our programming and within our community, our goal is always to inspire:
- Artists to do their best work and to share it with the University.
- Audiences to recognize the spiritual power of art and its capacity to change lives.
- Our communities to become active participants, rather than passive spectators, through the deep integration of arts activities between our campus and region.
Through this inspiration, we believe we can transform the nature of the world in which we live. Our hope is that when you attend a Weis Center performance, you share in an experience and moment in time with hundreds of others. When that happens, you'll leave inspired, moved and energized.
