College of Fine Arts

Equal emphasis on artistry and scholarship is deeply fundamental to the College of Fine Arts

Our success at the College of Fine Arts is built upon our community of artists and scholars in art, dance, music, theatre arts, and film and television. Members of our faculty cultivate the greatest possible potential for students, as well as pursue excellence in their individual areas of creative and research expertise. We are about quality, discovery, inventiveness and opportunity to better serve future generations. We also promote the arts as a means to understand our diverse world and teach the value of artistic intelligence as a mode of thinking, problem solving and discovery.

Your support enables our students and faculty to access a wide range of instructional and creative opportunities that have the power to transform their work and spark their genius. Donors like you help us bring guest artists in every discipline to the college to engage with students and share their work. Your investment also empowers students and faculty to travel to exhibit art and to present original research.

“As dean, I want to ensure that the arts become signature elements of the university's identity. Philanthropic support helps alleviate the arts experience at UA and helps us empower the next generation of brilliant artists.”

– Dean Andrew Schulz

Each year, the College of Fine Arts serves more than 300,000 attendees at exhibits, performances, lecture series, seminars and K-12 educational outreach programs. Our outstanding performance, exhibition, and academic spaces include the Marroney Theatre, the UA Museum of Art, the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre and many more.
