Arts Immersion

Arts Immersion trips give Stanford students an insider’s view into cultural capitals.

Each year, the Stanford Arts Institute hosts a number of arts immersion trips to cultural hubs like New York City, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area.


Following enrollment in Art in the Metropolis (ARTSINST 11Q) in winter quarter, students travel to NYC to visit a spectrum of art  and performance venues and meet institutional leaders, policy makers, and art practitioners. On past trips, students have visited museums, galleries, concert halls; they have seen dance rehearsals, opera, and Broadway shows, and have had the chance to connect with alumni working in the arts. The trip builds on the critical exploration and preparation conducted in Art in the Metropolis. The course and trip will be led by Associate Professor Terry Berlier, a graduate student course assistant, and an SAI staff member. Applications are welcomed from all undergraduate class years and majors.
