Tent at Browning Amphitheatre

This fall semester, the arts will be showcased on Ohio State’s Columbus campus in ways they haven’t before. Three outdoor tents will hold spaces for physically distanced classes, rehearsals and exhibitions in the various arts units across the College of Arts and Sciences.

The tent at Browning Amphitheatre east of Mirror Lake will house classes, rehearsals and programming from the School of Music and Department of Theatre. Another tent on the South Oval across from the Ohio Union will support activities held by the Department of Dance. The final tent that sits west of Stillman Hall is managed by Urban Arts Space (UAS) and is part of its Hybrid Arts Lab umbrella, which also includes the indoor Hopkins Hall Gallery and a virtual space, UAS from Home. The Stillman Hall tent is available for use across all arts units in the Arts and Sciences.

Sterling Tanner, a lecturer in the School of Music who leads the Buckeye Trombone Association, shares that “Performing at the Browning Amphitheatre has provided an opportunity to safely refine our craft while providing live music weekly to our Ohio State family.”
