A Message from the Director

CECA Director, Dr. Janice CrewsWe are so fortunate to have CECA ("seek-ah") as the only Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts in the state of Tennessee. I am truly inspired by the quality and variety of the CECA-sponsored programming presented by APSU’s Theatre & Dance, Music, Art + Design, and Creative Writing teams. Their efforts have allowed our APSU family and the Clarksville community to participate in engaging workshops and attend exciting performances and lectures by emerging and prominent guest artists from around the nation. These experiences have presented innovative ways of looking at art and the world around us. Best of all, most of our arts events are free or low cost and open to the public, and there's something for everyone. Has it been a while since you tried something new in the arts?  Come explore the arts with us!
