There is a legendary component in the departments that make up the School of Visual, Media and Performing Arts. Taught by some of the best artists and performers in the country (painters Mark Rothko and Philip Pearlstein, composer Tania León, violinist Itzhak Perlman, documentary filmmaker Vinit Parmar) our students have had enormous success in their fields. Each department is outfitted with top-notch equipment, and students have access to stellar studios and performance spaces.
Drawing on our talented faculty, excellent faculties, and central location of the country’s creative capital, we strive to provide access to successful careers in the performing, creative and media arts while inspiring a diverse community of students to find their artistic voices and express their own stories and visions.
We perform, produce and exhibit world class artwork to the college and surrounding community that is both traditional and forward thinking in media and design. We believe in the transformative power of art.
