Stimulating creativity through the arts
27 Mar 2017
“In my own philanthropy and business endeavors, I have seen the critical role that the arts play in stimulating creativity and in developing vital communities … the arts have a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our country.” ~Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft
The leadership at York College recognizes the importance of supporting the arts. Twenty-five percent of the college’s student body participates in arts classes. The recently opened Bartholomew Performing Arts Center has unleashed new opportunities for YC students and area youth. In addition, the community has access to the theater for school and community performances.
The new center came together through generous donations and the most successful fundraising campaign the college has ever undertaken. Learn more about this state-of-the-art facility.
