Arts & Museums


Our dynamic arts programs and world-renowned museums serve as teaching tools for students and scholars, and as sources of enrichment for visitors of all ages.


From our art studios and classrooms to our exhibition and performance spaces, Amherst nurtures artistic expression in every medium.


Whether you want to cultivate your own creativity or experience an exhibit, performance, poetry reading, or film screening, you’ll find endless opportunities to engage with the arts on campus.


Together, Amherst’s arts and museums foster a lively environment for the multidisciplinary study, creation and presentation of the arts.
