WCSU Visual and Performing Arts Center recognized as 'Best in Connecticut'

Connecticut Magazine has recognized The Visual and Performing Arts Center at Western Connecticut State University with the “Best of Connecticut” award.  The 18th annual compilation of “all the things we think make our state such a special place” was released this week.   The Center was named “Best Performing Arts Venue: College.”  The $97 million 130,000-square-foot Visual & Performing Arts Center is located on the Westside Campus in Danbury.

Connecticut Magazine wrote that walking into the theater or concert hall alone should result in a standing ovation.  The main theater and separate acoustically designed musical hall were described as breathtaking.




Interim Dean Jamie Begian says the Center represents a tremendous investment by the state to offer a top-flight place of learning for young people, a place where important dreams are dreamed and then realized.


Earlier this year, a list published by Web-based search engine, which helps students determine their best college options, named The Visual and Performing Arts Center as number 9 on a nationwide list of “The 25 Most Amazing Campus Arts Centers.”
