Harold Clurman Arts Series

The Harold Clurman Arts Series is comprised of eight distinct branches. You can read more about each branch by clicking on the links above. The Harold Clurman Art Series grew out of an effort to serve the broader to community and to expand the cultural horizons of students, to encourage them as actors to take their place among the greater family of artists, and to grow, through the arts, as human beings. All Art Series events are open to the public.

“Because it placed me directly in conversation with other artists, every Arts Series event was another opportunity to understand myself as an artist…Coupling the Series with my training, I really understood the importance of my craft to the world and felt genuinely compelled in my acting to, above all else, serve art responsibly and passionately.” – a student

“The series adds texture to our acting training and we experience the brilliance of other forms of art. Witnessing the presence of artistic dedication and success is motivating.” – a student
