The Patten Performances series was inaugurated by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1980 as the Dorothy Patten Fine Arts Series, in honor of one of Chattanooga's most famous performing artists. Ms. Patten appeared in over 30 Broadway plays, countless touring and summer stock productions, television shows and the movie Botony Bay , with Alan Ladd and James Mason.

The series celebrated the opening of the then-new UTC Fine Arts Center and continues to bring nationally and internationally renowned artists to the University community and the Chattanooga area. Over the years the Fine Arts Center has hosted the finest talent in music, dance and theater, including Dave Brubeck, Isaac Stern, Wynton Marsalis, the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Pilobolus Dance, The Tokyo String Quartet, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, the Vienna Boys Choir, The Acting Company, Diavolo, and SFJazz Collective, among many, many others. In keeping with our mission to present the highest quality artists available, this season includes performances from Secret Sisters, Second City, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance, Jesse Cook, River North Chicago Dance, Trio con Brio Copenhagen, and The Acting Company.
