Arts Institute

Montgomery College Arts Institute

The Arts Institute promotes, enhances, and supports the visual, performing, and media arts at the College, encouraging interdepartmental and intercampus exchange and collaboration. With support from the Montgomery College Foundation and the College’s donors, the Arts Institute brings distinguished guest artists and arts activities to MC’s three campuses for the benefit of students, faculty, staff, and the community. 

Through artist residencies, guest lectures, workshops, performances, master classes, exhibitions, concert series, and other programs that bring visiting artists to the College, students are given exceptional creative opportunities to work with and learn from distinguished professionals and scholars. 

The Arts Institute supports internships that allow students to discover career options in the arts and blend learning in the classroom with on-the-job experience. Working with visual, performing, and media arts faculty and staff, the Arts Institute develops collaborative projects with area arts organizations to enhance College and community programs in the arts.
