Denison sees art as a bridge to all other areas of study and research. Our art program emphasizes art-making as a means to think about not only oneself, but one’s relationship to the world of ideas from multiple perspectives.
The Dance Department facilities are located in the Doane Dance Building, the Mulberry House MIX Lab and the new Knapp Performance Lab. They are designed to encourage collaboration and interdisciplinarity.
Denison has a truly impressive list of musical ensembles—Brass, Wind, Chamber, Bluegrass, Jazz, Orchestra, Concert Choir, Singer’s Theater, Latin, String, Trumpet, Flute, Guitar—the list goes on!
Renovated in 2009, the highly functional and inspiring Bryan Arts Center is the size of some small art schools and offers personal studio space for every studio art major in their senior year.
The department has a fully equipped scene shop adjacent to the stage; a second shop used for welding and additional construction; and a separate electrics shop that houses an inventory of more than 175 lighting instruments.
