Our Mission  


The Center serves a dual purpose: to enhance the academic programs on campus and to complement the cultural offerings within Jacksonville. We host an eclectic mix of world-class performers, entertainers, ethnic music and dance, cutting-edge performances, and children’s programming. The Center is a vibrant community of artists, students and audiences with events spanning all performing arts disciplines, workshops, lectures, corporate training seminars, social events and receptions.


Coming Soon: Lewis Black


The UNF Fine Arts Center is proud to present world-renowned comedian Lewis Black on his only Jacksonville stop of the 2014-15 national tour “The Rant Is Due: Part Deux.” Known as the king of the rant, Lewis Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and animated finger-pointing to skewer anything and anyone that gets under his skin. His comedic brilliance lies in his ability to make people laugh at the absurdities of life, with topics that include current events, social media, politics and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness he sees in the world.
