The Fine and Performing Arts Center at Bowie State University is a stunning $71 million state-of-the-art facility with more than 123,000 square feet of specialized teaching and performance spaces. The building supports three distinct disciplines in the arts – fine art, music, and theater – in acoustically isolated zones that enable simultaneous performances and classroom activities. The elegantly appointed facility features an intimate 400-seat main stage theater with a rising orchestra pit, a black box theater for experimental works, a 150-seat recital hall, a versatile movement studio and a fine art gallery.
