The Arts Council sponsors and coordinates a variety of arts activities on campus which contributes significantly both to the curricular and the extra-curricular life of the School. It also keeps the School community in touch with a wide range of interesting arts events on neighboring campuses and in the greater Los Angeles area. The Arts Council also regularly presents exhibitions of photography, painting, and sculpture by members of the Claremont community and artists of local and national reputation.
Music groups perform at numerous Claremont events. The School of Theology Chorale (community choir), composed of students, spouses, staff, and faculty, regularly participates in community worship services. The Korean Singers present music in both English and Korean. Other musical ensembles are formed as time and interest permit. Claremont students are welcome to participate in the excellent choirs at The Claremont Colleges and attend concerts which these schools sponsor. The extensive musical venues of the Los Angeles area are also readily accessible. Drama activities include the production of plays presented in the School’s fully equipped Mudd Theater, as well as in worship services. Groups of students and faculty attend and discuss plays presented at The Claremont Colleges and as part of the active Los Angeles theatrical scene. Of special interest are the many equity waiver theaters which regularly present important contemporary work produced and performed by members of the Hollywood film and television community who use these stages as a way of keeping in touch with the traditions and practice of live theater.
Opportunities for the study of film and television as an art form, cultural record, and communications resource are available on campus and in the surrounding area. On-campus movies, open to students without charge, include recent feature films as well as a regular series of art and classic films. Facilities are provided for individual study of these media, with the Flaherty Study Center offering special resources in non-fiction film.
