Welcome to the Brandt Center
Artistry comes alive at the John and Orah Brandt Fine Arts and Convocation Center. This modern architectural masterpiece houses the 1,500-seat Swayne Auditorium, The Friesen Art Galleries, two luxurious VIP suites, a number of well-appointed support spaces, and the exquisite 9,000 square-foot Grand Lobby. The venue showcases work by artists from the University, the local community, and from around the world.
The Friesen Galleries facilitate our human ability to express and communicate aesthetic awareness. The Galleries provide a visual education whereby students enhance their appreciation for art, and an environment for encouraging their artistic skills and talents.
Since it's opening in 1997, the Brandt Center's Swayne Auditorium has offered engaging, family-friendly, and highly entertaining performances to the Treasure Valley community. Listen to the music of the Boise Philharmonic, be entertained by ballet and theatre productions and enjoy performances from NNU's own Department of Music.
