Arts and Culture

The arts are a central part of the Carolina experience. Each day, diverse arts programs and courses connect members of the UNC-Chapel Hill community to one another and to the ever-changing local and global culture. Transformative and dynamic, the arts reflect the University's pursuit of new knowledge and commitment to public service.
