The College of Fine Arts declares that the arts are essential to the life of the individual and the community. We express our commitment to the arts through our dedication to teaching, scholarly research, artistic experimentation, performance, and exhibition.
The College is comprised of four academic units: the School of Art and Visual Studies, the Department of Arts Administration, the School of Music, and the Department of Theatre and Dance. The Singletary Center for the Arts, the College’s performing arts facility, supports the School of Music and presents national and international artists and speakers to facilitate the College’s mission of providing artistic and cultural experiences for the education and benefit of students, the University, and the Commonwealth. The University of Kentucky Art Museum is Central Kentucky's premier accredited art museum with a collection of more than 4,500 objects. The Museum reaches more than 10,000 students and teachers annually throughout Kentucky.
