Arts

Let us entertain you! Come to Pacific University to enjoy performing and visual arts with a wide selection of public events in music, theatre, dance and visual arts.

Watch our student performers take the stage— the Music Department concert season highlights a variety of musical styles, while the Department of Theatre & Dance stage theatre productions and dance performances throughout the year. And don't miss the Pacific University Annual Lūʻau, the only completely student-run and student-directed lū‘au in the Northwest for over sixty years. This presentation of traditional Polynesian dance, music and entertainment attracts about 2,000 people every year.

Pacific University also draws outside artists to the community. Enjoy headliners from around the globe with the Performing Arts Series, a Pacific University signature event. Experience the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art, featuring studio art in monthly rotating exhibits.
