Welcome to the Academy for Visual and Performing Arts!  Since 2003, we have been supporting the curiosity, passion, and endeavors for the Arts on the Texas A&M University campus and in the Bryan-College Station area.  We host nationally and internationally renowned experimental artists, support innovative experiments by our faculty and students, but also engage our community in current dialogues about the Arts.  We hope you join us to make an impact on the Arts, our community, and society.

    CARESS, an audio choreography

    Caress is an immersive audio choreography designed to be experienced in your own kitchen. Participants are invited to follow a series of movement prompts woven into stories about caregiving and Asian femininity.

    Caress was created by recent TAMU grad Nia Wilson (Performance Studies ‘21) in collaboration with Dr. Angenette Spalink (Performance Studies). It was made possible through funding from the AVPA’s Pandemic Innovative Arts Grant.
