COVID-19 vaccine required to attend UMass Amherst events on campus


AMHERST, Massachusetts (WWLP) – If you plan to attend events at UMass Amherst, make sure you have a vaccination certificate. This includes art performances on campus.

The university is also reminding customers to bring face-covering clothing. Masks are mandatory for all visitors, staff and students.

The university has several events open to the public in the coming months:

  • Acrobuffos: Air Play – Saturday, December 4 at 6:00 PM at the Frederick C. Tillis Performance Hall

They’re back! One of our most popular and enchanting family presentations in recent years, Air Play magically blends comedy, live sculpture, circus and theater. With flying umbrellas, floating fabrics, swirling snow and fits of laughter, this visual-poetic performance has astounded audiences all over the world! Perfect for all ages.– UMass Amherst

  • Tig Notaro: Hello Again – Wednesday, January 19 at 8 p.m. at the Frederick C. Tillis Performance Hall

Tig Notaro is an Emmy and Grammy nominated stand-up comedian, writer, radio contributor, and actor, as well as a favorite on numerous talk shows, including “Ellen,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and “Conan.” Rolling Stone named her one of the “50 Greatest Stand-Up Comics of All Time.” – UMass Amherst

Suntai focuses on subjects with bold, evocative and unashamedly dramatic colors. This exhibition features portraits that reflect her perspective of growing up as a person of color – a black child in America.– UMass Amherst

The show consists of a series of recent (mostly) abstract drawings that attempt to explore a connection between what can be presented with our advanced observation tools and what can be invented or distorted using similar visual elements.– UMass Amherst

“Sideshow includes prints and drawings that inspired Eisenman’s graphic practices and relate to their chosen themes of social gatherings, urban experiences and entertainment. These works of art range in time from the narrative prints of the 18th-century British artist William Hogarth to the late prints and drawings of Pablo Picasso, done well after the Second World War.” – UMass Amherst
