Sharing Art

Every day, student artists are given the opportunity to explore and exhibit their talents.

Just a few feet from the Harre Union, the Center for the Arts is home to musical, theatre, and artistic spaces, allowing students to delve into their own creativity. Each student is given the opportunity to display their work in unique spaces such as the Brauer Museum of Art, Duesenberg Recital Hall, and the University Theatre.
