Living the Promise: Arts & Culture

arts and culture

What's Next? Creating New Knowledge...

At UC Riverside, our historians, sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists and experts on Latino, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, Native American and other cultures are expanding our understanding of the times in which we live, inspiring our young writers and artists to engage the minds and hearts of an audience, by going beyond what has been said, danced or played before and living the promise of California’s diverse heritage.

Ways UCR is making our "neighborhood" a source of artistic inspiration and contributing to the culture of our region:

  • The UCR ARTSblock is playing a key role in the revitalization of historic downtown Riverside. It includes the iconic California Museum of Photography, the Sweeney Art Gallery and a soon-to-be-completed Culver Center of the Arts. Exhibits, poetry slams, arts walks and musical performances are just some of the many offerings open to the public.
  • The UCR Center for Ideas and Society fosters a wide range of interdisciplinary research in the humanities. Through lectures, readings and conferences the Center engages the public in dialog with leading scholars, activists and writers.
  • UCR's Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts enables student performers to bring live music, dance, theater and art to regional audiences, especially to K-12 schools and senior citizens organizations.
