The City College Center for The Arts

The Division of Government, Community & Cultural Affairs is proud to announce the launch of The City College Center for the Arts. The Center will serve as a cultural hub that builds a sense of community both within the school and its surrounding neighborhood, while inspiring creativity and diversity. It will also provide a premier venue for local and national performers and for art patrons in the tri-state area. Aaron Davis Hall, now under the auspices of The City College Center for the Arts, is the focal point of this creative revitalization.
