The arts are a vital part of education, and NC State University recognizes the importance of fostering arts programs—both for our students and for the larger community. Arts NC State invites all students (regardless of their major), faculty, staff and the community to participate in arts programs and productions.

Our mission

Arts NC State advocates on behalf of an exciting and diverse collective of visual and performing arts programs. By fostering collaboration, coordination, shared resources, cross-promotion, and mutual support among these programs, Arts NC State enriches the lives of students while serving the community, region and state. The programs of Arts NC State are the Crafts Center, the Dance Program, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, the Music Department, NC State LIVE, and University Theatre.
