The Schwartz Center
The Department of Performing and Media Arts is housed within the elegant Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts. A regionally recognized cultural facility, the Schwartz Center attracts 20,000 patrons a year to its varied activities.
Its marble walls encompass all the elements needed for teaching and performance in theatre, film and dance: four performance spaces, dance and theatre rehearsal studios, scenery, costume and prop shops, sound and lighting design studios, and film editing and production suites. The Schwartz Center serves as a catalyst for the creative and intellectual endeavors of the many talented students, faculty and staff at Cornell.
Events and Performances
PMA hosts dozens of professional and student-run events and performances each year in the Schwartz Center, involving hundreds of student workers, organizers, performers and crew members.
