This Life of Sounds

Renée Levine Packer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the University's role in the arts in general, providing a brief overview of the emergence of arts support within American universities, beginning with Columbia University in 1896, through today's commissioning and presenting initiatives on campuses across the country. The idea of the university as “incubator” articulates the vision of stimulating the potential creativity of students through the arts. Specifically, the legacy of the Center is discussed: June in Buffalo festival; artists' spaces in Buffalo today; Creative Associates now in leadership positions at major educational institutions, training a new generation of players; archives of music scores and recordings.

Keywords:   arts support in universities, June in Buffalo, Bennington College, Black Mountain College, legacy, Center of Creative and Performing Arts
