Arts, entertainment, theater and music events for students and alumni in NYC

Princetonians spending time in New York City this summer can attend special workshops, events and interviews through the first-ever Arts/Work program. Sponsored by the Office of Career Services, the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Princeton Arts Alumni Association, the Arts/Work program connects students with alumni and working artists of all kinds. 

"Students can expect intimate, unique meetups with alumni working in the arts who are enthusiastic about sharing the work that they do," said Simon Wu, a rising senior with an art history concentration and a certificate in visual arts who is serving as the student coordinator for the program. "Arts/Work is a way to connect people and tap into the awesome arts alumni network that you don't hear about as much back on campus." 

Organizations including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Times, Broadway, galleries, theaters and more are providing behind-the-scene looks, workshops, tours and special opportunities for Princetonians. Future events will also include a recruiting and career education event featuring employers in the arts for students from Princeton, Columbia and New York City arts schools. 

Students and alumni interested in being added to the Arts/Work listserv to learn about upcoming events should email Simon Wu.
