Welcome to the Performing and Visual Arts

Augustana's long-standing tradition of excellence in the performing and visual arts reaches all students – from majors preparing to enter professions as musicians, actors, visual artists or arts educators, to those simply interested in the arts – and to members of the local community, who can attend multiple performances and exhibits throughout the year.

The Arts

In this section:

In music, students have the opportunity to participate in several wind, choral and string ensembles.

In theatre, student actors, musicians, designers and technicians produce four main stage productions per year and are involved in numerous student productions and organizations, including Brand Name Improv and Viking Varieties.

In the visual arts, our Center for Visual Arts houses studios for printmaking, sculpture, painting, ceramics, drawing and graphic design, as well as galleries for professional and student exhibitions and a liturgical art center.

Outreach efforts to the local community include over 100 performances, concerts and exhibits, several camps, festivals and competitions hosted on campus, and the Sioux Falls arts scene which has so much to offer our campus community.
