Arts Exchange

Arts Exchange Logo

What have you always wanted to do but haven't had a chance to try?  Arts Exchange is your chance to explore the arts and disciplines beyond your area of study.


The College of Fine and Applied Arts introduced Arts Exchange as an opportunity for students to experience the arts outside of their own areas of study. Previously, the college celebrated the many areas of study and disciplines through a day of special activities. Units across the college opened their doors to more than 800 FAA and campus students who participated in faculty-led workshops ranging from hip hop dance to paper making and from city planning to composition with computers. This year, the college is promoting events, specially designed courses, and non-major courses to engage more students and provide a greater depth of understanding of our disciplines and art forms.

The information below provides more information about the events and courses designated as Arts Exchange.
