Welcome to a New Season in the College of Fine Arts

The student and faculty artists of Millikin’s College of Fine Arts have sustained a reputation for excellence in the visual and performing arts for decades. The coming season of concerts, plays, musicals, and exhibitions will showcase the many reasons why. Every month, Arts@Millikin will feature experiences you won’t want to miss. And many are free of charge!

This season, student and faculty musicians will be featured prominently in what is sure to be another dazzling series of concerts by the Millikin-Decatur Symphony Orchestra, and in performances by the award-winning choral, chamber, wind, and percussion ensembles of the School of Music. The work of our visual artists across a variety of media will be showcased in the Perkinson Gallery, the Blue Connection, and the annual Arts Technology Expo. Performers and designers in our nationally-recognized School of Theatre and Dance will offer a season of musicals, comedy, drama, and dance in collaboration with the MDSO and the Alabama Ballet.
