Art & Music

By consciously focusing on art and music together, we can create new art forms.

Explore the Intersection of Art and Music

The Bob Crewe Program in Art and Music enables students to explore the deep relationship between art and music. Made possible by the largest gift in the College’s 132 year history, a $3 million bequest from the Bob Crewe Foundation, this program is unique in that it is fundamentally embedded into the Art and Design program, not separated from it. The goals of the program are to foster experimentation in art and music, to support significant contributions to popular musical expression, and to do both in a way that encourages interdisciplinary exploration. The program, working in tandem with MECA’s rigorous visual arts offerings, prepares students to cross traditional boundaries as musicians, performers, sound artists, artists and thinkers.
