Arts @ Clarke

The University for the Arts

The arts are of utmost importance at Clarke University. We strive to provide not only the best university performing arts majors and curriculum to benefit those studying the arts, but also as a way to help enrich the community of which we’re a part. Our art programs are a window to the larger world of performing arts. We pride ourselves on staging high-quality productions and attracting top professional talent to both teach and perform. Major programs of study are available in art, art history, drama, music, music education and musical theatre.

The Arts at Clarke series features performers, lecturers, musicians, dancers, poets and writers from across the country and around the world. We have hosted such talents as Thompson Square, Maya Angelou, Andy Grammer, Javier Colon, Dr. Drew Pinsky and Step Afrika!
