Arts and Culture

Student in the art gallery in Hammond

Fostering a sense of cultural appreciation is an important part of a university education and a vital ingredient for a thriving community.

CenterStage events feature national and international artists as well as collaborations with student and community groups. Our concerts, art exhibits, films, lectures and theatrical performances are a great resource for members of both our campus community and those who reside in the cities and towns of the region.

The Hub Series

Providing a unique opportunity to experience national acts and lecturers in a local, intimate setting is what the CenterStage Hub Series is all about.

With just over 150 seats, the Hammond Hall Falcon Hub offers a relaxed, coffeehouse-style room with comfortable seating, cash bar and a very cool atmosphere. The CenterStage Hub Series is 18-plus.

At Weston Auditorium

Some performances demand a larger space. The Weston Auditorium is a traditional 800 seat venue where CenterStage is able to bring events from big bands to larger than life entertainers. With tremendous acoustics, there is not a bad seat in the house.


ARTeries is our art department’s bi-annual juried exhibition that showcases the strongest original student work in drawing, painting, sculpture, and mixed-media art. ARTeries provides an opportunity for the university community to celebrate the artistic talents of Fitchburg State students.
