Taste of the Arts Returns to CSUB

Taste of the Arts is making a return to the California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) campus on Sunday, October 9 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in and around the Doré Theatre. This free event will allow the community to experience the Art, Music and Theatre programs first-hand.

Guests will be treated to musical performances by choral, jazz and chamber music students; excerpts from the Fall plays, “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “There’s an Alligator Under My Bed,”; an exhibition of student art work; guided tours of the new Visual Arts Building and live demonstrations in the pottery studio. In addition to the sights and sounds, Taste of the Arts will also offer ‘tastes’ courtesy of Café Med who will serve complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres.

“For many years, 'Taste of the Arts' was a highlight of Bakersfield’s fall artistic calendar, and we are so excited to renew this great tradition. Community members are invited to hear 'small bites' of music, experience a gallery exhibition, take in a scene from a Shakespearean comedy, and more, all the while supporting the flourishing CSUB arts programs,” said Jim Scully, of the Art, Music and Theatre Department.

This year, over 500 students participate in art, music and theatre programs at CSUB. Faculty and staff members help students acquire the skills necessary to succeed in their future pursuits. Taste of the Arts will provide an up-close and personal view of the CSUB Department of Art, Music and Theatre as students, faculty and staff work together to enhance the quality of life in Kern County.
