Irvine Arts and Culture


For the ultimate guide to theater, music and other events on the UC Irvine campus, be sure to stroll over the bridge outside the Student Center at the north edge of campus. Plastered with flyers, it's the definitive insider view to university arts.

One glimpse of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts — a compound of beautifully modern theaters and halls anchored by the massive, sculptural glass and steel waveform of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall — and you quickly understand that Orange County and Irvine are places where arts and culture thrive.

Like many internationally diverse cities that are also home to major colleges and universities, Irvine sustains a vibrant community of actors, dancers and artists who bring their talents to stages, galleries and festivals throughout the year.

While you can always find blockbuster events at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre and the Bren Center on the campus of the University of California, Irvine, even small community playhouses like Irvine's Musical Theatre Village sell out their highly-polished productions.

Creative-minded visitors can also find an outlet for their inspirations at the Irvine Fine Arts Center, which offers classes for kids and adults in everything from cooking to ceramics, many of which are single-session classes perfect for visitors.
