Celebrate the Arts
Join the Boston College Arts Council in celebrating the arts on campus. The entire Boston College community is welcome and encouraged to get involved.
The arts have a unique ability to teach and to encourage communication. They challenge our thinking, touch our hearts, and connect us through collaborative action. Whether it is reflecting upon the impact of the arts, or participating in the act of creation, artistic activities exercise the critical and aesthetic thought processes that we value so highly. Participation in art and performance promotes a sense of community and empathy with the human condition. It connects us all. Artistic pursuits are essential to the formation of the whole person and fundamental to a university environment.
