The Arts at Linfield

An original theatrical production. An exhibit showcasing student artists. Readings by internationally-known authors, who happen to teach on campus. Linfield’s flourishing arts community engages our on- and off-campus communities through new interpretations of classical pieces, as well as new original works.
