Princeton University Mythbusters, #2 in a series.
Myth: PRINCETON IS NOT A SCHOOL FOR ARTISTS. Reality:
Princeton offers students the opportunity to work – and perform! – with painters, dancers, poets, writers, singers and musicians who are tops in their field. In addition to the visual- and performing-arts majors and programs offered through the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music, young artists at Princeton enjoy access to McCarter Theatre Center and to Richardson Auditorium, venues known for nurturing student performers while also hosting world-class entertainers. Princeton has many student-led companies, too – from Shakespearean to improv troupes. And in 2017, the curtain will go up on Princeton’s new Arts & Transit Center, a state-of-the-art(s) complex of performance spaces, meeting places, restaurants and other attractions to serve Princeton’s vibrant arts community.
