An important role of a comprehensive community college is offering the arts to its community. Since PVCC’s V. Earl Dickinson Building for the Humanities and Social Sciences opened its doors in 1998, more than 100,000 people have attended events in the 500-seat Main Stage Theatre, the Maxwell Black Box Theatre, and the PVCC Gallery.
This rich array of programming being offered represents a wide range of cultures and genres, such as the Richmond Ballet; American Indian dances; the Washington Balalaika Society representing the rich musical heritage of Russia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe; theater workshops; art gallery exhibitions, and the annual community art installation "Let There Be Light."
No matter the program, the goal has been the same: to bring high quality visual and performing arts to students and to the community at affordable prices.
