Arts

Our Arts program was created to bring an appreciation of the fine arts into students' lives by discovering individual talents, encouraging original expression, and fostering creative discovery. On campus, Students experience live professional performances in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, see professionally curated exhibits in the PACE Galleries, and display their own works of art in the Nadler Gallery.

Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center

Located on the historic campus of Fryeburg Academy, the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center is home to a variety of professional and student performances throughout the year. Since opening its doors in January 2009, the “LHE/PAC” has offered a state-of-the-art performance space for the Mount Washington Valley. From hosting renowned performers such as Peter Yarrow and Carbon Leaf to projecting live digital video streams of the Metropolitan Opera’s “Live In HD” Series, the LHE/PAC has become a cultural heartbeat of northern New England.

Funded in part by the Robert and Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Foundation.
