Murphy Fine Arts Center

Welcome to the Murphy Fine Arts Center!

The Murphy Fine Arts Center houses the studios, classrooms, and lab spaces used by Morgan State University's Department of Fine and Performing Arts. It is also a performing arts house that includes the 2,000-seat Gilliam Concert Hall, the 300-seat Turpin-Lamb Theater, and the 167-seat Recital Hall. It is also the home of the James E. Lewis Museum of Art.

A limited schedule of special events will be presented by both entities in the Murphy Fine Arts Center during 4th quarter of 2021. We are very happy to "back in business" after more than a year of COVID-related closures.

As the schedule of events is updated, please remember that, in accordance with University policy:

  • All visitors, patrons, and participants of events must wear facemasks at all times when inside of the Murphy Fine Arts Center.
  • Please practice physical/social distancing when possible and,
  • Avail yourself of hand sanitizing stations as often as possible.

Please check our schedule of events often. The schedule will be updated when performances or art exhibitions are announced. We also invite you to "LIKE" the Murphy Fine Arts Center on Facebook if you are a Facebook user. Event information is also updated on Facebook.
