The Arts

World-Class Resources

The arts are central to life at the University of Virginia. Set within our historic 1,149-acre Grounds, UVA offers access to world-class art and performances at historic Old Cabell Hall, the Ruth Caplin Theater, The Fralin Museum of Art and Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection. Through UVA Arts and signature events, such as the Virginia Film Festival, the University cultivates a vibrant community that promotes creative expression and unites artists and performers across the Commonwealth, nation and world.

UVA fourth-year student, Uzo Njoku, takes the adage your college career is what you make it to a new level with her art and best-selling coloring book, The Bluestocking Society.
