IUP and its arts-related departments and programs have been presenting performances and exhibits as far back as the founding of IUP. In 1989, the Lively Arts was established to bring all of the College of Fine Arts’ visiting artist, exhibits, and performances under one umbrella and to better inform the community of all that we have to offer.
Presenting nearly 200 events each year from theater to music, from art exhibits to dance, and from traditional to classical to jazz to folk, the Lively Arts has become the single most-active presenter of arts events and activities in Southwest Pennsylvania outside the Pittsburgh City limits.
In addition to the dozens of exhibits presented by the University and Kipp Gallery over the years, below is a timeline of some of the many major performance accomplishments, projects, and events for the Lively Arts since the late 1980s.
