Center for Arts and Ideas

We are a program of the Division of Fine Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, led by co-directors Prof. Jehanne-Marie Gavarini of the Department of Art and Paul Marion, executive director of Community & Cultural Affairs. We help UMass Lowell maintain positive relationships with the public and community partners, coordinating activities that enrich campus and community life.
Each semester the Center publishes "Arts and Ideas," a publication highlighting cultural activities, major lectures and talks, and special events taking place at UMass Lowell and in the community. Events are updated in our Calendar of Events.
