The Hofstra Experience

Exploration, experimentation, and production in a community of learners.


From the abstract to the tangible, ideas become action through research, making, prototyping, and exhibiting.


Through vigorous expression, artists, designers, and scholars take responsibility for the stances reflected in what they make.


Innovation and future-building through production and scholarship.

Outside the Classroom
