Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts

For nearly sixty years, the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts has been a center of excellence in the visual and performing arts, and a significant contributor to the cultural life of northeast Florida.

Our distinguished faculty of professional artists and scholars are guided by a mission to ensure our students receive the instruction, mentorship and personal attention required to realize their full artistic and intellectual potential. Our students take advantage of rich cross-disciplinary opportunities in the college—a place where dance, music, theatre, film, design and visual art intersect. From award-winning theatre, dance and music, to the annual Fiat Lux Film Festival and exhibitions of nationally- and internationally-known visual artists in the Alexander Brest Gallery, the arts thrive at Jacksonville University.
