Our Arts program was created to bring an appreciation of the fine arts into students' lives by discovering individual talents, encouraging original expression, and fostering creative discovery. On campus, Students experience live professional performances in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, see professionally curated exhibits in the PACE Galleries, and display their own works of art in the Nadler Gallery.

Having met in New York City, the members of opus87 come from across the country, and have made it a core part of their mission to bring high-quality chamber music to their home states and other communities. Their upcoming summer tour will take them to venues across the country, including dates in Maine, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
