Performances and Exhibitions

Performances and exhibitions are key parts to our fine arts curriculums which are both comprehensive and flexible. In the departments of visual art, theatre and music, the professors are performing artists themselves. Our beautiful facilities are a plus to the strong curriculum.

  • Wells Theater: The theater on campus opened in 1990. It features computerized lighting control, a counterweighted fly system, large scenic and costume studios, a design studio with a CAD system and plotter as well as several Mac computers, and computerized front-of-house operations.
  • Dahl Chapel and Auditorium: built in 1896 and renovated in 2003, the auditorium is where most concerts are held. The 600-seat facility has a warm acoustic environment that has been praised by visiting artists.
