A gift that keeps giving | Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center a 'cultural landmark'
When the ground was broken in the late 1980s to build Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center, it was predicted to be the crown jewel of the Johnstown arts scene. It unquestionably has lived up to the hype. The facility on the Pitt-Johnstown campus boasts a state-of-the-art lighting system, vibrant acoustics and breathtaking architecture.

Being executive director of Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center involves more than introducing performers from the stage before a show. Duties are many and varied and haven’t changed much since the arts center opened on the Pitt-Johnstown campus in 1991. The arts center is owned and operated by Pitt-Johnstown, and the executive director is an employee of the university.
There have been two executive directors in the center’s 21-year history. Patricia Carnevali came on board before the center was built, and Michael Bodolosky took over in 2006.
