About Us

Peter and Elizabeth Horowitz

Visual and Performing Arts Center

The Peter and Elizabeth Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center opened in the fall of 2006 and quickly became a cultural hub for Columbia and greater Howard County. Since opening, more than 740,000 patrons have attended events in the center’s three performance venues and two galleries. 

As an educational and production venue, the center offers community members the opportunity to engage with the arts as patrons and as students. Featuring state-of-the-art instructional facilities for the college’s Arts & Humanities Division, the center serves credit and noncredit students studying visual and performing arts. Home to three performance venues and two art galleries, the Horowitz Center annually welcomes more than 50,000 patrons to performances and exhibits at the student and professional levels. Through a combination of resident and partnership programming, the Horowitz Center seeks to promote a life-long relationship with the arts, enhancing the cultural climate of Howard County and stimulating growth amongst the faculty, students and guest artists whose talents are realized in the college’s performance and exhibit venues.
