Center for Creative and Performing Arts

The Center for Creative and Performing Arts (CCPA) draws on Wesleyan’s rich heritage of excellence in the fine arts and serves as a link between the creative communities of the College and the Central Georgia community. Our programming includes art exhibits, performances, lectures, summer camps, excursions, internships, and more.

Cultural Trips
The Center for the Arts offers a series of curated day trips to interesting destinations throughout Georgia and neighboring states. These trips focus on discovering and appreciating the cultural treasures of our region, with emphasis on art, music, theatre, literature, and food. Trips are always open to Wesleyan students, Wesleyan employees, and the Central Georgia Community at reasonable prices.

Adopt-a-Painting: The Conservation & Restoration Program for Wesleyan’s Art Treasures
In 2002, Wesleyan established a program to conserve and restore our significant works of art. Our aim is to preserve the aesthetic and monetary value of our permanent collection—a collection that has great use to students, scholars, and art appreciators. Conservancy is the top priority including assessments, re-stretching and cleaning canvases, remounting canvases, treating works on paper, and restoring historic frames. Appreciators of art and friends of the college have contributed to the conservation of our collection by “adopting” a painting for restoration. Our expert conservators have examined 150 works of art and provided us with estimates depending on the extent of work involved in restoration. Some paintings suffer from large cracks and loss of paint due to age and environmental conditions, others simply need a cleaning. So far, we’ve restored more than 130 paintings and frames and $330,000 has been raised through this successful program.

Adopt-a-Painting program. Many other paintings in need of “adoption” and those already restored are pictured on our website.
