The Robert Ferst Center for the Arts, located in the heart of the Georgia Tech campus, provides a showcase for the presentation of concerts, recitals, lectures, dance, film and theater. This state-of-the-art facility houses an intimate 1,200 seat auditorium featuring a proscenium stage, orchestra pit, and theatrical lighting and sound systems, and is designed to provide a wealth of diverse and enriching opportunities for both the Georgia Tech and the greater Atlanta community.

The Center for the Arts officially opened its doors on Monday, April 13, 1992, with a dedication performance by world-renowned pianist, Andre Watts. Since then, it has hosted an annual season of world-class performances by such artists as Itzhak Perlman, Marcel Marceau and Wynton Marsalis. The Ferst Center is also host to several local performing arts organizations including Savoyards Musical Theatre Company, Jomandi Productions, Ballethnic and the Atlanta Ballet.

The Ferst Center hosts not only the best in performing arts, but visual arts as well. Presenting a broad spectrum of artists, the Ferst Center invites visitors to explore the Richards and Westbrook Galleries which feature exhibits that combine fine art and technology. Both galleries are located near the front entrance to the building, and are open to the public during all performances. Exhibitions are proudly presented by the Fulton County Arts Council.
