The arts create powerful intersections between the classroom and real life. They open doors to lifelong appreciation and provide insights into our complex world. They also serve as a steppingstone to professional pursuits and a chance to make an important, creative imprint on that world.
We consistently encourage artistic expression and experimentation and provide the environment to help both flourish—with extraordinary results.
The College serves as a hub for new and creative endeavors that reverberate beyond Middlebury—student work that enhances intercultural communication and artists who break new ground. Examples of these abound, including ambitious theatrical performances that win national awards, and dance and music tours to U.S. cities and venues abroad.
Middlebury’s spectacular setting and facilities attract distinguished local, national, and international artists to campus, providing mentorship and opportunities for audiences to experience art in ways they never would otherwise.
