Welcome to the Center for Creativity and the Arts (CCA) at Fresno State. CCA is California's Central Valley's leading interdisciplinary institute for the arts.  

CCA is a collaboration and dialogue across the university's colleges and disciplines; the Central Valley's multicultural roots, cultures, and industries; and local K-12 arts education affiliates. Serving a diverse university and regional community, CCA engages the public through innovative art exhibitions, university-wide programming and curricula, and community events.

Our goal is for the university and the community to be partners that partake in an active conversation on the arts, why the arts matter, and how the arts can enrich our lives.

As the world locked down due to the pandemic, CCA shifted their focus from bringing nationally and internationally recognized artists to Fresno State to exploring the creative outlets of local and regional artists through the 2020 experience. PANDEMICAL explores the ways COVID-19 has impacted our lives, creativity, and artistry. Taking advantage of the online medium, it will showcase spoken word, poetry, theatre, music, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video and animation.
