Visiting Artists Bring Art to Life

Performances On And Off Campus

In addition to the many annual in-house department concerts, plays, musical, coffee houses and other informal performances, the Flickinger auditorium main stage plays host to a full slate of professional performers entertaining audiences of the KUA and local community members. These range from dance to Indie Rock, classical, and everything in between. Artists in residence often join the Kimball Union arts community for extended stays that enrich the lives of students and faculty alike.

The vibrant artistic community of the Upper Valley and nearby Dartmouth College supplement all programs at Kimball Union and offer the opportunity to enjoy performances off campus. Weekly trips to world class performances at the Hopkins Center For The Arts are open to all students.

The Taylor Gallery

This well-lit and versatile space is in the Flickinger Arts Center, just off the main lobby. The Gallery is home for student art shows and also serves as the exhibit space for artists from outside the school community. All shows are open to the public free of charge and are preceded by an official Opening. Shows present a variety of media, from pottery, photography and painting, to printmaking and collage. Openings highlight local and not-so-local artists, sometimes featuring alumni, faculty, and former faculty, and are often scheduled to coincide with student or guest performances in the theater.

With titanic vocal skills, creative drive and inspired scatting, she takes charge of each song’s musical and storytelling potential. Her debut album, A Social Call, is a sophisticated collection of fresh, in-the-moment reworkings of inspirational jazz standards, hard bop anthems, spirituals and R&B nuggets. Accompanied by a small ensemble, Horn delivers what she says is “a call to social responsibility, to know your role in your community.”

  • HOP Trip: Camille A Brown and Dancers

    Choreographer and dancer Camille A. Brown leads her irresistible company in ink, which moves through captivating stories about identity and self-empowerment in African and African American culture. Brown nimbly combines movement styles from social dance, ritual, hip hop, tap and everyday life, enhanced by artist David L. Arsenault’s collage projections and onstage musicians. ink sweeps in time from the slave trade to the present, from griots to DJs, depicting the comedy, sensuality and political edge in black fellowship. Widely known for her TED talk on social dance in the African diaspora and as choreographer for NBC’s recent live broadcast of Jesus Christ Superstar, Brown brings her own distinct vision.
