Giving to the College of Visual and Performing Arts

A Transformative Influence on Individuals and Civilizations

The College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) advances the study, creation, performance, and exhibition of the arts, acting on the strong belief in their transformative influence on individuals and civilizations. Fusing the academic and the professional, the campus and the community, CVPA seeks to engage new art forms, audiences, and ways of working to meet the needs of a changing world.

Join us in making the arts ascendant at Mason.

Today, CVPA has almost 1,500 arts majors across seven core disciplines: art, dance, music, theater, arts management, film and video studies, and computer game design. The arts play a central role in the life of George Mason University by offering students from all fields the chance to participate in creative endeavors in the classroom, studio, stage, gallery, and beyond; by welcoming hundreds of thousands onto our campuses each year for performances and exhibitions; and by building a vibrant community of faculty, staff, students, and visiting professionals in pursuit of the college’s mission.
