In positioning all visual and performing arts disciplines around the revitalized entryway to campus at 15th Avenue and High Street, we are creating an arts ecosystem — an enduring, yet ever-evolving hub for artistic, educational, social and commercial interchange.
 
We are welcoming the community to campus through the arts.
