Art for everybody's sake

Art makes things happen. It bridges cultures and forges understanding. It sparks conversation and inspires creativity. Since our founding, the arts have played an important role in our commitment to global citizenship and social change.

Brandeis is one of New England’s premier arts centers, featuring live music and theater year-round, one of the nation’s foremost collections of modern art at the Rose Art Museum and our annual Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, as well as degree programs in the creative arts.
