Arts Across Campus

Who we are

Inspiring lifelong learning in, about, and through the arts, Arts Across Campus seeks to enhance students' understanding and appreciation of artistic expression in all its various forms, to foster their creativity, and to broaden their worldview through engagement with the arts. AAC makes high-quality artistry accessible both to OCC students and to the larger, Syracuse-area community.

Arts Across Campus (AAC) Launched in 2001 to assess and improve the existing arts on campus (AAC) presents an annual comprehensive arts program. The program may include a combination of the following in a given year: concerts, theater, lecture, film, rotating art exhibits, and permanent public art installations. This initiative is also characterized by partnerships with successful arts organizations such as the CNY Scholastic Arts, Arts in Higher Education, Symphoria Syracuse, Syracuse Stage, The Society for New Music, and by collaborations with local, regional, and national artists, including OCC students, faculty, and alumni.
