The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center is an inclusive, second-city destination for the region’s premier Visiting Artist Series—art with a point of view—informed by reflection on our Catholic character and inspired by the academy’s pursuit of knowledge. In this spirit, we ask the art we love to reveal its secrets to us such that we can soak up perspective, beliefs central to our humanity and simply experience pure joy. Several artists are involved each season in multiple days of engagement experiences yet take the stage for just one to three transformative performances.

Here dance, music, theater and cinema aren’t charming diversions: They are unconventional inspirations.
