The Fine Arts Circle was established in 2015 as a membership guild designed to provide critical funding for the educational programs within the College of Fine Arts at Florida State University. Gifts made through the Fine Arts Circle assist in the development of programs in Art, Art Education, Art Therapy, Art History, Arts Administration, Interior Architecture and Design, Theatre, Dance and Museum Studies. Donors who contribute $2500 or more to the College are recognized through the Fine Arts Circle.
FSU’s Fine Arts programs are some of the best in the nation. The School of Dance continues to be a pioneer and leader among college dance programs, maintaining its reputation as a center for the creation, reconstruction and production of outstanding dance repertory. Graduates from the School of Theatre are regularly earning roles on stage and on screen, landing FSU on Playbill’s Broadway’s Big 10 list of universities represented in Broadway shows. US News and World Report recently ranked the Department of Art’s MFA Program as the best in the State of Florida. For the fourth year in a row, our graduate program in the Department of Interior Architecture & Design was ranked #1 most admired program by deans and chairs in DesignIntelligence Rankings. Furthermore, as FSU was listed as one of the nation’s top producers of Fulbright Scholars according to Chronicle of Higher Education, two faculty members from the Department of Art and two students from the Department of Art History received this prestigious award.
These extraordinary accomplishments would not be possible without the members of the local community and beyond who generously support our College. Donations made by the Fine Arts Circle Members help ensure that each of our programs receives necessary funding for continued success and further advancement.
