Visiting Artists

Throughout the academic year, the art departments invite a diverse range of artists, performers, and writers for short visits and long-term residencies. They present their work in the form of exhibitions, readings, performances, lectures, and artist’s talks, and also teach master classes and workshops.


You can foster your artistic side outside the classroom as well. Whether you attend a theater production by Masque and Triangle or perform with the Student Wind Ensemble, you can immerse yourself in artistic, musical, and theatrical expressions all over campus.
