Arts in Context

Experience the Arts in a Whole New Way!

AIC LogoJoin us prior to select performances for our Arts in Context discussions.  Led by special guests, this program offers insight that will enhance your experience when viewing the upcoming performance. You will learn more about the performers and the production itself, and will also have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue with someone more intimately connected to the performance.
