This page is in progress of being updated. Please use the links in the related calendars block on the right side of this page. Thank you! 

This is a short list of arts events happening on campus. This list will continue to grow throughout the semester. New events pop up often during the semester and checking departmental or school calendars can also be a good way of finding events to attend. Events are free unless otherwise noted (tagged with $). 

Although we do our best to ensure up-to-date and accurate information on the AE calendar, it is a good idea to visit the event host’s website to make sure there have been no event changes.  If you catch a typo, please e-mail Thanks!
