The Hess Center for the Arts

The Art Department’s programs are based in the Hess Center for the Arts, with facilities for visual and performing arts alike.

The Hess Center for the Arts houses:

  • The Hess Auditorium
  • The Von Auersperg Gallery
  • The Elizabeth Wachsman Concert Hall
  • An acting lab
  • A modernized recording studio
  • Improved art spaces

Numerous exhibitions and performances take place in the Hess Center each year, drawing enthusiastic audiences and providing showcases for individual talents as well as group efforts. Exhibitions provide recognition for promising young artists and photographers, while actors, technicians, dancers, and musicians showcase their talents in the performing arts spaces.

When there are exhibitions, the Von Auersperg Gallery is open 9:00am-3:00pm, Monday through Friday (when school is in session) and by appointment.
