Sonoma State University’s Arts Integration Program offers opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to engage in a variety of artistic experiences that compliment and integrate with academic and student success programs. These activities aim to foster creativity, an exploration of diverse ideas and cultures, and encourage empathy for the experiences of others.
Guided by our university’s core values, the School of Arts & Humanities, Green Music Center, University Art Gallery, and University Library Gallery partner to provide our university community with access to resources and tools that support interdisciplinary collaborations, innovative programs, and the priorities of Sonoma State’s Strategic Plan 2025.
Faculty and student success program leaders (e.g. MESA, EOP, etc.) may request complimentary tickets to bring their classes and student affinity groups to performing arts events around campus as a part of their course and programmatic work.
During remote instruction, the Green Music Center will offer virtual programs, including performances and conversations with professional artists from around the country. Please visit the ticketing portal for more information about requesting access to these programs.
Artist Engagement Activities
Professional performing artists participate in residency activities such as lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and conversations with students, faculty, and staff. These activities are designed to develop creative capacities, critical thinking skills, and encourage participants to investigate communal and personal values.
During remote instruction, the Green Music Center will offer interactive engagement activities that connect artists with classes through Zoom. Please contact us to learn more about these opportunities.
The gallery produces museum-quality exhibitions including solo and group shows featuring work by regional and nationally known artists, art faculty, and students. Incorporate a University Art Gallery visit into your curriculum. While we're remote, exhibitions are virtual and can be viewed on the University Art Gallery Website.
