Arts Immersion

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

Students travel with Ivan Lupić, Assistant Professor of English, for a week-long engagement with the arts, meeting institutional leaders, policy makers, and arts practitioners. They visit museums, galleries, concert halls; they see dance rehearsals, opera, and a Broadway show (Hamilton in 2016!), and have a chance to meet with alumni in the arts. In the spring quarter class Art in the Metropolis (ARTSINST 11Q), students revisit their Immersion experience by reading critical literature and participating in rigorous discussion.

Explore the arts and entertainment industry in Los Angeles guided by Stanford Arts staff.

From the Warner Brothers Studio to the Getty, spend a week seeing performances, visiting museums, going behind-the-scenes at film studios, and meeting alumni in the arts – all while exploring L.A. No spring quarter course required.
