Department of Fine and Performing Arts
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton
The disciplines of studio art, art history, dance, music, and theatre play an integral role in the University and on the Madrid Campus, both academically and culturally. Our vibrant Fine and Performing Arts Department is dedicated to providing students with an outlet for imagination and expression, a supportive environment for learning and honing artistic skills, and a context for the critical assessment of aesthetics and cultural values. Our performances and exhibits bring performers, artists, and audience together in a communal celebration of truth, beauty, and the human spirit.
The department is located on the first floor of San Ignacio Hall. Follow the smell of the paint and the sounds of music and dancing feet, and join in!
