The Arts at Illinois

The College of Fine and Applied Arts is a community of artists, designers, performers, and scholars dedicated to teaching skills by placing emphasis on the primacy of the creative process, on contributing to the future development of culture, and on a deep engagement with the society.

Known for the comprehensiveness of its programs, the college is in a unique position to explore what it means to be an arts college in the twenty-first century. Essential to this exploration is a new energy, a fresh dedication to crossing borders, and an eagerness to engage society in new ways.
