Muse Performing Arts Showcase

Held each spring, the Muse Performing Arts Showcase offers the Muse Scholars an opportunity to present their creative achievements to the Hunter community while gaining valuable experience in directing, managing, and event planning.

Launched during the Spring 2013 semester, the annual showcase originally consisted of a visual art exhibition and an evening of student performances. Muse visual artists have shown photographs, paintings, drawings and installations, while performers have played instruments, sung original and cover songs, tap-danced and read poetry and fiction.

The performing arts showcase is planned and organized by committees of scholars, while programs and communications are created by scholar designers and writers.

During the Spring 2015 semester, the visual arts portion of the showcase became a separate event: campus-wide art project called Activating the Urban Campus, which involves scholars installing their original paintings, drawings and photographs, as well as creating murals, around campus. The Muse Performing Arts Showcase been held in the Ida K. Lang Recital Hall, a theater capable of seating nearly 150 guests, since 2015.
