The D'Arts Committee is a committee of DeVry University's very own faculty, staff and students who are not only interested in but devoted to the promotion and integration of arts and culture on our campus. From photography to poetry, painting to theater, web graphic design to music - we encourage the members of our campus community to join in creating a well-rounded collegiate experience by sharing in the arts! For nearly ten years, we have supported off-campus art and cultural related excursions and have been the host of over 80 on-campus events including poetry slams, open-mic nights, car shows, cultural festivals, musical performances and our annual art show. Join us for our next event:
