10 Years of Arts at MU at the Ware Center

In this, the 10th Anniversary of Millersville University’s opening of the Ware Center, the Arts at MU continues to pursue its mission of fostering creativity, learning and understanding through the cultural arts even in these toughest of times. We have taken significant steps to ensure the safety and health of our patrons when attending our “in-person” events, which include:

  • Separate Entrances and Exits;
  • A Temperature Kiosk reading before entering;
  • Masks worn at all times;
  • Limited capacity venues and indoor spaces (compliant with DOH regulations);
  • Socially distanced seating and accommodations including restrooms and elevator (compliant with CDC guidelines); and
  • Continual maintenance of cleanliness to high touch and high traffic areas.

We also have been able to provide free virtual Performing Artist Series performances and Family Fun Fest experiences to Lancaster County families and local schools continuing our dedication to cultural arts education regardless of physical or economic circumstances.

Though we are not having a social event this year, the Arts at MU is participating in the Extraordinary Give on Friday, November 20th. As a special incentive this year, our Silver Season Sponsor 12:34 MicroTechnologies has generously offered to match our first $500 donation! Like all of the worthy organizations in our community, we too, are grateful for your continued support of our efforts to embrace a vast array of artistic endeavors and make these offerings available to a broad span of our community, especially young people. Thank you for your consideration as you give EXTRA this year!
Finally, the Arts at MU will continue to present music, dance and theatre and host unique cultural events when, where and how we can, because the arts will always find a way. If you haven’t already, be sure to click below to join our list for email news and updates!
