Pop Go the Arts

Beginning this fall, Stevenson will supplement the Cultural Programs and Exhibitions schedule with a series of Pop-Up arts experiences, creating a robust, arts-rich campus community. Pop-Ups will include hands-on design workshops, impromptu musical and theatrical performances, creative conversations, and much more. These arts experiences will be hosted outside of the university’s traditional venues at a variety of campus locations at the heart of student engagement and activity.
