NUM Department of Music presents:


Let the 6th annual Department of Music Prism showcase take you on an "adventure" in music featuring over 150 students across various large and small ensembles, solo performers and student composers. We will explore works by J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Dvořák, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Stephen Schwartz, and John Williams' famous Raiders of the Lost Ark theme.

Harold J. Kaplan Theatre, CA 3042 | March 12, 3 p.m.

Department of Art + Design, Art History, Art Education presents:


EcoHope must exist alongside EcoDespair, but the arts can offer a path for renewal through visual and responsive engagement. The artist -activists in this exhibition are intercessors and illuminators--whether the work is conceptual, allegorical or metaphorical, or representational and specific, it examines and addresses systemic environmental failure through remediation, confrontation, education, personal lived actions of the artist, or simply by drawing attention and asking the viewer to respond.
