As part of the Art in Place / the Place of Art program, we have planned a wide variety of performances, exhibits, talks and demonstations.  Participating artists include the Copeland Fellows, special guest artists, and Amherst arts faculty.  Spring events include choreographer Idan Cohen's new politically-oriented dance piece "Mad Siren"; a symposium on art, the community & social justice including two workshops led by Amie Dowling and Ping Chong; a screening of Catherine & Tareque Masud's award-winning feature film "The Clay Bird"; an exhibition of new sound installations; and a showcase of new faculty collaborative works. 

All events are free and open to the public. Events held in the Kirby Theater do not require reservations. To reserve a spot for either Ping Chong or Amie Dowling's workshop (more details here), please email
