Fine Arts

Ripon College has enjoyed a tradition of excellence in the fine arts dating back to the early 1900s, including acting legends Spencer Tracy ’24, Harrison Ford ’64 and Frances Lee McCain ’66; award-winning musicians Al Jarreau ’62 and Gail Dobish ’76; and award winning “Titanic” sound editor Tom Bellfort ’67. Many other Ripon alumni have gone on to play major roles in the entertainment and art industries.

Perhaps our greatest strength is our size, which creates a world of opportunity for anyone who is interested, regardless of major. Learn more about our generous Fine Arts Scholarships for students interested in studying and participating in Studio Art/Art History, Music or Theatre.

The 2015-16 Ripon College Fine Arts season is underway, featuring an eclectic mix of student performances and well-known artists, theatre, dance and music performers. Many of these guest artists are able to travel to Ripon as part of the Caestecker Fine Arts Series and the Chamber Music and Jazz at Ripon Series. Check our Fine Arts Calendar for upcoming events and details on reserving tickets. Or, view our 2015-16 fine arts brochure.

A special thanks to Ripon College Friends of the Arts members, who provide vital financial and volunteer support for fine arts programming and activities. Friends membership helps to bring outstanding performers, musicians and visual artists to the College. It also provides support for student and faculty training and other “wish-list” items identified by the departments of art, music and theatre. To join Friends of the Arts, call 920-748-8126.
