The auditorium of the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts is a 124-seat facility with full audio and video capabilities.  The space is available for use at no cost by campus departments and organizations that are planning events that are free, and that respond to one or more of our core programming goals:

* To deepen public appreciation of contemporary art and to inspire active dialogue about its social, political and cultural implications.

* To contribute to the professional development, intellectual enhancement, and networking of students and emerging practitioners in the arts.

* To broaden our understanding of the exhibitions on display through interdisciplinary conversations that relate to themes or concepts explored by exhibiting artists.

* To provide a space for other kinds of thought-provoking, innovative and cross-disciplinary conversations, both within the arts and between partners from colleges across the UTEP campus.

* To expose new and relevant audiences to the Rubin Center, expanding our circle of visitors and supporters.
