Rutgers in New York Event Series

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Study at the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Since 2001, the school has showcased its students in professional New York City settings. Students studying dance, music, theater arts, and visual arts have performed and exhibited in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, the Blue Note, Majestic Theatre, Bill Maynes Art Gallery, White Box Gallery, the Joyce Theater, and the Kaye Playhouse. These unique events have also brought distinguished alumni such as Kristin Davis and Avery Brooks back to the Rutgers community. An endowment for Rutgers in New York will cover about one-third to one-half of the annual operating expenses associated with the series. Rutgers in New York allows these students to say that Rutgers made it possible for them to perform or exhibit at eminent arts venues. Few other conservatories of the school's caliber offer students such an opportunity while providing them with a strong academic foundation; this makes Mason Gross one of the most exciting places in the country to study the arts. Rutgers in New York also shines a light on the university at large, with increased visibility throughout the tri-state area.
