The visual and performing arts are fundamentally important to the life and culture of our College. Our students engage with the arts as both creators and viewers. We are painters and sculptors, actors and songwriters; we attend gallery openings and rock shows. Much of Middlebury's arts activity resides in the Mahaney Center for the Arts, but the making and appreciation of art happens everywhere: all over campus, in the town of Middlebury and throughout New England, and even abroad. Whether you're in the band or just here to watch, we've got a place for you.
