Arts at UVa

The Arts at the University of Virginia is dedicated to building on innovative research and fostering inspired expression that equips us for the future. The University’s first phase of constructing the Arts Grounds—encompassing new, expanded, and renovated structures for the fine and performing arts—is nearing completion. In gratitude to former President John T. Casteen III and his wife Betsy, the University has named the entire arts precinct the Betsy and John Casteen Arts Grounds.

UVa has a wide assortment of Art concentrations:

Film, Media, Video
Drama &Dance
Creative Writing
Lecture & Symposium

The Fralin Museum of Art was named after Heywood and Cynthia Fralin in 2012, in honor of their lifetime of service to the University community, and the generous donation of their collection of American art to the University’s art museum.
