First envisioned as part of a University master plan two decades ago, The Miller Performing Arts Center provides a home for the theater, dance, and music programs, and serves as a cultural focal point for the region. Alfred University is located in a rural area, and the Performing Arts Center provides the region with access to a wide variety of regional and national artists. It also serves as a venue for student-run productions.
The Miller Performing Arts building has won two architectural awards: the first was for its unusual design and the use of exterior brick, and the second recognized the building as an outstanding example of theater architecture.
