Arts Events in Charlotte

2017 Cultural Calendar

Learn about the lectures, festivals, and performing arts events coming to campus. We look forward to seeing you in the audience!

The exploration of art and intellect leads us into the realm of imagination, creativity, inspiration and vision. Artists and thinkers are our guides, challenging us to see in new ways. With their help, we are able to expand our minds, and ideally, our souls. They empower us to see past what is right before us. They dare us to view life through a different lens.  We are able to connect.

At Queens University of Charlotte, we wholeheartedly support arts and culture in all of their forms. We invite you to delve into these creative expressions and discover a world beyond yourself--a world beyond each of us. Welcome to our world.

Student Opportunities
Opportunities for students in the arts abound. Our majors and minors in the arts provide students experience in the classroom and the studio. Students exhibit in the Max L. Jackson Gallery, join music ensembles, perform in Hadley Theater, participate in arts clubs and organizations, and edit Signet, the undergraduate magazine of art and literature. Explore our The Arts at Queens to learn more about these departments and programs.
