Our Campus has many hidden gems. We also have a wide array of events to choose from.
The Fresno City College Museum of Anthropology and the associated Archaeological Curation Facility house a variety of collections reflecting the material culture of the indigenous peoples of the Central Valley of California, artifacts from Mesoamerica, South America, and Africa. The Archaeological Curation Facility also curates artifacts and records from archaeological projects in the Central Valley and Sierra Foothills.
Since its inception in 1991, the City Jazz Festival has grown to an event hosting dozens of student jazz groups from throughout California, performing in three different venues at Fresno City College. A panel of jazz educators critiques the students’ performances, and they attend a variety of workshops presented by some of the greatest professional jazz performers in the country. Scholarships are awarded to outstanding student performers.
A variety of world class speakers share their knowledge and experience with the community. These events are sponsored by the college and are free to the community. Learn how Jesus become an important influence in the world, learn about tattoos, policing strategies, love, or what it is like to be an astronaut.
Every year in Spring, the Art Department honors the hard work of the students with a juried exhibition at the Art Space Gallery. Jurors are professional artists, curators and gallerists that are invited to pick the best student artwork that represents Fresno City College Art Department. Students are given prizes for best work, courtesy of Allard's Art Supply.
