As we celebrate the Center’s 15th anniversary, we realize it’s not about a number. It is about the good that happens when our innate creative passion is stirred + inspires us to be better together. Let’s do this.



Transformative encounters with truth and beauty, as communicated through the arts, are a treasure that the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center makes available to patrons from a remarkably diverse cross-section of the local and campus community.


Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C
