Our Mission… mission column

The AVPA increases resources to existing TAMU performing and visual arts departments; supplements existing campus arts offerings by producing diverse, innovative, and prominent performing and visual artists; and facilitates coordination between the TAMU campus, arts organizations at peer and aspirant peer universities, and within a larger community of artist/scholars, especially those in the region. The AVPA supports practice-based research, and understands the development of performing and visual arts projects as epistemologies in their own right as well as aesthetic endeavors.
