Bringing the Arts to the Community

Bringing the Arts to the Community

As the premier arts outreach program at UC Riverside, the Gluck Fellows Program provides fellowships to exceptional UCR graduate and undergraduate students to present their research through arts-related presentations, performances, and workshops in the Riverside community.

Started in 1996, the Gluck Fellows Program creates opportunities for students of the departments of Art, Creative Writing, Dance, History of Art, Music, and Theatre to bring their creativity to Riverside Community venues, such as schools, elder care facilities and community centers. The ARTSblock also participates in the program. The Gluck Program believes open access to creative pursuits is one of the fundamental components of healthy communities, and it endeavors to provide this access to the underserved in the Inland Empire.

The Gluck Program is made possible through the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation, which since the program’s inception in 1996, has provided over $10 million in funding to the University and CHASS to continue funding the arts.

Workshops have featured dancers, musical and theatrical ensembles, singers, actors, poets, art historians and others, traveling to schools and community centers to bring the arts to underserved audiences. And with outreach events like Gluck Day of the Arts and the ‘From the Vault’ program at the UCR/California Museum of Photography, as well as GluckTV.UCR, the program continues to grow.
