Art, Music, and Theatre


The arts are everywhere at Sandburg!  Whether you’re a painter, an actor, designer, or musician, there are many ways to express your creativity at Carl Sandburg College.   Walking across campus you’re sure to see art in our hallways and in The Lonnie Eugene Stewart gallery, see rehearsals and performances in our Fine Arts Theatre and hear preparation for concerts held on and off campus.  You don’t have to look far to see that we give students a number of ways to use their gifts on campus. 


Our students have gone on to careers in studio art, music, acting, film production, makeup design, teaching and a whole host of other arts-related careers.  Most students at Sandburg find the arts an enrichment and social opportunity to augment their chosen majors.  Whether you want to pursue the arts as a career or simply enjoy them as a part of your academic experience, we have numerous opportunities from which to choose.   And given our desire to nurture every student in their talents, faculty are extremely accessible to students.  You won’t find such individual attention at a large university, but at Sandburg our goal is to develop you and your talents for the next step in your career or education.
