What's Happening in the Center for the Arts this Fall?

LSC-CyFair's 2012 Fall Arts SeasonA variety of fall visual and performing arts highlighting Lone Star College-CyFair’s student and faculty talent can be seen in the Bosque Gallery and in the Main Stage Theatre. 

Add a little culture to your year at one or all three art exhibitions starting with “Out of the Woods” featuring the talent of Suzanne Manns. Come explore the wide range of symbolism that she has attached to trees in her work in this exhibition on display through Sept. 20. Then return to see the creativity of LSC-CyFair’s faculty and students with the “Art Faculty Exhibition” Oct. 2 through Nov. 8 and the “Student Art Show” Nov. 27 through Dec. 6.

All exhibitions are in the Bosque Gallery in the Center for the Arts building at 9191 Barker Cypress. For gallery hours, artist receptions and exhibition information, go to LoneStar.edu/BosqueGallery or call 281.290.3445.

Then LSC-CyFair’s Jazz Ensemble takes to the stage Nov. 16 with “JazzChronicle” – an instrumental tour through a century of America’s music. The Symphonic Band performs Nov. 20 with “BoleroandtheWorks” – a concert featuring the passion of strings, rhythm and brass.

The season concludes in December with two events.
