Penn State Hershey’s Center Stage is the performing and visual arts program funded by Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine. Its mission is to offer a regular menu of live music and art to patients, families, caregivers, and visitors during their time at the Medical Center. We offer:
- Live music, theatrical and dance performances by performing artists in waiting and clinical areas throughout the Medical Center.
- Piano music on our baby grand in our main entrance lobby
- A summer lunchtime concert series for the entire Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and College of Medicine community.
- Juried rotating exhibitions by local artists in numerous waiting and clinical areas; these shows culminate in artist reception and art sales.
- Collaborative art making projects for patients and family members.
- Artwork lending program for patients during their longer-term stay
To volunteer as a performance host or for more information on Penn State Hershey, Center Stage please contact Claire de Boer at the Penn State College of Medicine, in the Department of Humanities: email@example.com
