Clarke University’s Arts at Clarke events have been canceled due to the growing concerns of coronavirus (COVID-19). 


These are exciting times at Clarke University! Our Arts at Clarke line-up for the fall semester is once again, very impressive. Our goal is always for these events to be stimulating, educational, and enjoyable for all.

The theme for our arts and lecture offerings the 2019-2020 academic year is Do Something! We want these events to inspire and motivate people to do. Find your passion. Pursue a goal with your whole heart. Help others. Get involved. Be engaged. Make a difference. Do Something!

This year’s events are designed to highlight this theme and showcase talented artists, musicians, actors, and lecturers from around the country – and from right here in our back yard.

Do Something! … and attend one of these fantastic events!

Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks

A darkly comic and contemporary fable of brotherly love and family identity, TOPDOG/UNDERDOG tells the story of Lincoln and Booth, two brothers whose names, given to them as a joke, foretell a lifetime of sibling rivalry and resentment. Haunted by their past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future.
