Friends of Drake Arts supports the rich tradition of fine arts experiences at Drake. We provide grants to fine arts students and faculty to defray the cost of travel and other expenses for competitions, conferences, and other professional opportunities. Funds are also used to bring prominent guest artists to campus from all over the United States and the world, providing valuable learning opportunities for our fine arts departments and the Drake community.
Drake's high-quality faculty and fine arts students generously share their gifts with the community. They present more than 100 performances and exhibits throughout the year at little or no cost.
