About the Arts Council

The beauty that is the fruit of human artistic creativity is a clear expression of mankind's highest aspirations and a manifestation of the glory of God...

Pope John Paul II, Address to the Patrons of the Arts of the Vatican Museums April 18, 1997

The College's Art Council supports the integral role of the arts in higher education and their universally recognized status as a hallmark of an educated and humane culture. The Council contributes to the cultural vitality of the campus and to the University's role in the greater community by fostering and promoting the visual, literary and performing arts, enhancing communication and collaboration among its members.

The Council serves as the parent organization for the College’s Classical Concert Series, Choral Ensembles and Activities, Jazz 'n the Hall, Seton Hall Theatre, and select exhibitions within the University’s Walsh Gallery. The Council is committed to increasing the visibility of University arts and cultural events on and off campus.
