The University of Pennsylvania has recently released a set of guidelines pertaining to COVID-19, which include restrictions on events and campus access, and the temporary closure of Penn’s arts centers. The Sachs Program will do its best to update our website to reflect any resultant cancellations. We also encourage you to visit the host sites for all events to confirm details. Ongoing events, such as exhibitions, will remain listed on our site for the time being.
Through our website and newsletter, The Sachs Program highlights events, performances, exhibitions, and other forms of public engagement on and off campus. Most of what we list is neither produced nor directly supported by The Sachs Program. Our intent is to point you to the great things happening at Penn and driven by Penn faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Penn is a destination for the arts. Happenings are what we think you should be experiencing now.
