Friends of Drake Arts

Drake has a rich tradition of fine arts. Drake Fine Arts presents more than 100 performances and exhibits throughout the year. This work would not be possible without the Friends of Drake Arts, who have been fostering fine arts programming for more than 25 years. The Friends of Drake Arts supports aspiring artists' dreams by allowing students to explore their passions and share their talents with the world. Your gift to the Friends of Drake Arts enhances the music, theater, and visual art programs at Drake and brings art to the surrounding community.
