Performing Arts/Cultural Interests

The SUNY Poly Campus Activities Board (CAB), as part of the Student Government at Utica, sponsors various performances throughout the academic year, to include comedians, musical artists, hypnotists, and more. Students may purchase discount tickets to performances presented by internationally acclaimed artists in the Broadway Theatre League at the Stanley Performing Arts Center.

The Gannett Gallery, located in Kunsela Hall at the Utica campus, hosts several art exhibitions a year, including SUNY Poly’s annual regional show.

Culturally diverse programs are also available through programming by the SUNY Poly Campus Activities Board, President’s Programming Initiative, and special interest groups (International Students Association and Black and Latino American Student Union). Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and other cultural programs provide the opportunity to celebrate the unique contributions of our culturally diverse world.

In addition, academic programs at both campuses sponsor lecture series, symposia on current research, demonstrations, and dramatic readings which are open to students and the SUNY Poly community.

Students may also participate in performance ensembles in theatre and instrumental jazz.
