About Columbia University School of the Arts Public Programs
The School’s Public Programs are guided by a commitment to presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across the arts. A curated series of public lectures and events, organized by the School’s Office of Public Programs, is held each fall and spring semester. These events aim to create a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners, students, scholars and the public. In addition, exhibitions, productions, readings, lectures, screenings and concerts are presented by the School’s programs in Film, Theatre Arts, Visual Arts and Writing, and by Miller Theatre.
