Arts Immersion

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

Each year, Stanford 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 over spring break with Professor Jean Ma to experience a broad range and variety of art forms (visual arts, theater, opera, dance, etc.) and meet with prominent arts administrators and practitioners, some of whom are Stanford alumni. The program is designed to provide a group of students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the cultural life of New York City. Applications are welcomed from all undergraduate class years and majors.
