The Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts places the arts at the heart of the liberal arts experience and as a cultural center for Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
There are two performance spaces of human scale and functional design—a 200-seat music recital hall and an experimental theatre seating 150—each accessed through a common glassed lobby that overlooks Martha Washington Square.
In addition to the entrance at Martha Washington Square, visitors can enter the Center through a covered rear entrance adjacent to a guest parking lot. The Tipson Terrace, forming the front facade, is the perfect backdrop for impromptu outdoor performances.

These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich
A SCE Production directed Rachel Treglia ’19
These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
