Anthracite Fields at the Weis Center

Weis Center for the Performing Arts

Arts & Performances

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.

Curricular Connections

Weis Center Curricular Connections

What are Curricular Connections?

Many of the performances presented at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts feature additional programming where Bucknell’s faculty and students can connect with visiting artists through masterclasses, pre-show talks, class visits, and community meals. These active-learning opportunities support the core values of a liberal arts curriculum as they engage students with real-world problems and ideas, challenge students to think critically and increase cultural intelligence. Curricular Connections with artists are designed to enrich the educational experience at Bucknell by expanding the walls of the classroom.
