Brown has an energetic art scene
You can get your fill of theatrical performances, concerts, and exhibitions without leaving campus—not to mention the resources and events of RISD, the city of Providence, and beyond.
Anyone can get involved. You don’t have to concentrate in art or theatre to have your work displayed or to act in (or direct) a play.
Brown students manage numerous art and performance clubs, including a cappella groups, student-produced theatre, dance troupes, student bands, visual art clubs, publications – even juggling, improv comedy and Taiko drumming.
