Coker College’s Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Performing Arts Center


The Center is one of the most advanced facilities of its kind in the nation. It serves as a community resource for a wide range of educational and cultural events, including the professional events of the Coker College Performing Arts Series, while also housing the College’s Department of Dance, Music and Theater and providing facilities for the Communication program.

Situated at the grand entrance of the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Performing Arts Center, the Martin Stein Gallery houses Coker College’s Virginia Brunstein Collection and Fine Arts Collection.

Coker College’s Fine Arts Collection is comprised of unique and rare works given to the College over the years by alumni and friends. It includes paintings by Edward Gay, Favrile Glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany, sculpture by Anna Hyatt Huntington, African folk art, and a large 18th century American gilt mirror. Two works by Coker art professors Jim Boden and Jean Grosser are also part of the Collection.
