Photo Gallery: Skybridge Curatorial Project
The arts flourish in the lively exchange of ideas that a liberal arts curriculum fosters. Through integrative arts courses such as “Hearing Art, Seeing Music” and “Culture, the Arts, and Society," students at Lang get the arts talking to one another. And that’s exactly what today’s artists, performers, dancers, and musicians are doing: talking and collaborating.
The emphasis in all our tracks—in arts in context, theater, dance, music, and visual arts—is on experimentation. The BA/BFA combined degree programs offer students the opportunity to pursue academic interests in both liberal and fine arts. And the city itself offers you a thriving cultural milieu of cutting-edge performances and promising new arts scenes.
You’ll have Experiential classes such as Arts in New York City and Lang at the Public and Lang at Judson Church built around public performances in dance and theater, often staged at major venues in the city. The spring 2006 theater production, Witold Gombrowicz’s Operetta, for instance, was held at LaMaMa Experimental Theater in the East Village, a theater famous for being in the vanguard of experimentation. Arts students also have the opportunity to participate in visual and audio curatorial projects in our new Skybridge Gallery.
Lang Arts also presents events showcasing the work of our arts students. Examples include:
Fall and Spring Arts Festival: Student and Faculty work in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts
Senior Work Festival: highlights of senior work projects conceived by Lang arts students
Visiting Artists: each semester Lang Arts hosts a Visiting Artist who works with our students to represent the visual arts, theater, dance, or music.
