The Arts at Queens

The mission of The Arts at Queens is to enhance the life of our campus and the Charlotte region by fostering educational opportunities to connect, create, and collaborate through artistic expression and leadership in the arts. As a higher education resource for the arts in Charlotte, we create educational access to the arts, prepare future arts leaders, offer cultural opportunities for the community, and serve as a model for collaboration across arts disciplines. We regularly offer literary, performing and visual arts cultural events that feature distinguished visitors and talented students.
