Performing Arts History at Clemson

Brooks Center Construction 1991-94The dedication of the Robert Howell Brooks Center for the Performing Arts on April 15, 1994 launched a new and exciting phase in Clemson University's dedication to the performing arts. The opening of the nearly 90,000 square feet facility was the result of almost two decades of petitioning, strategic planning, fundraising, and construction.

However, the performing arts at Clemson can be traced to the early part of the century. The establishment of the Brooks Center was a clear sign that Clemson University recognized the essential role of the arts in a great university community.
