The visual and performing arts are fundamentally important to the life and culture of Middlebury College.

Our students, faculty, and staff engage with the arts as both creators and viewers. We are painters and sculptors, actors and songwriters; we attend gallery openings and rock concerts. Much of Middlebury’s arts activity resides in the Mahaney Arts Center, but the making and appreciation of art happens everywhere: on campus, in town, throughout New England, and even abroad.

Middlebury is deeply committed to creating a diverse, welcoming community with full and equitable participation for all. At the Mahaney Arts Center, we believe that the arts should be open and accessible to everyone. We invite your engagement in this work that is ongoing and guided by our belief in justice, equity, and diversity.


Due to COVID considerations, all three of our Performing Arts Series events in January 2022 will now be presented virtually.

While we’re disappointed not to host these events live at Robison Hall, we’re glad that we’re able to offer this safe, stay-at-home option. Virtual tickets ($15, or $5 for Middlebury College students) are available now. Please note ticket sales will be online only.

Please check back for updates, or watch ArtsMail for announcements. Thank you.
