Join us in celebrating the work of students from the 2021-22 Honors in the Arts cohort!

Welcome to the hybrid symposium for the 2021-22 Honors in the Arts cohort. These sixteen student artists have spent the academic year creating deeply innovative and interdisciplinary projects across a wide spectrum of media: poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction, film, photography, digital and visual art, screenwriting, playwriting, theatre, and dance.

Eleven Honors students created video essays to present their capstone projects, which you'll find on this page. The other five members of this year's cohort presented their capstone projects at the live symposium on Friday, May 13, 2022. You'll find their project descriptions at the bottom of this page.
