Virginia Tech students and employees have the opportunity to participate in a variety of arts activities across campus. Employees who don’t work on the Blacksburg, Va., campus are encouraged to visit often to take advantage of a wide range of performances, exhibitions, and engagement activities. The arts programming is one of the things that makes Blacksburg a great place to live and work.

The Center for the Arts and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology, with which the Center for the Arts is uniquely partnered, are housed in the Moss Arts Center.
