Great Spaces

Great spaces spark great work. And there’s no better space to create, contemplate, and curate art than our home base, the 70,000-square-foot Art and Interactive Multimedia Building.

Global Perspectives

Cultivate a worldview of the arts through travel-study courses, an international faculty, and immersion in the NYC and Philly art scenes.
