The Hylton Performing Arts Center, on Mason's Science and Technology Campus, is home to the "Veteran and the Arts" initiative. This program facilitates community engagement through local arts organizations.

This facility, which operates a partnership between Mason, Prince William County, the City of Manassas, and the Commonwealth of Virginia, entertains, educates, and enriches the Northern Virginia community by providing diverse and accessible arts experiences in state-of-the art venues. It offers internship opportunities in development, marketing, venue management, and operations.

Arts Management graduate students regularly work with Center staff and leaders during classes and internships.

Arts Management graduate students assist Mason's Campus Curator, Don Russell, with the installation Migratory Aesthetics in the Gillespie Gallery of Art.

This multiple-venue forum is dedicated to displays of visual art that advance research, dialogue, and learning around global social issues.

It also offers a diverse program of exhibitions by established contemporary artists, thesis exhibits by current MFA candidates, and a semi-annual SOA undergraduate senior exhibition.
