Founded in 1860, Augustana is a selective, private, residential, comprehensive (liberal arts and professional) college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Central to our mission are five core values — Christian, Liberal Arts, Excellence, Community and Service — that serve as the foundation for the University’s academic and student life programs.
Performing and visual arts at Augustana represent the heart of the arts in the Sioux Empire. Our long-standing tradition of excellence in the arts reaches out to all students, from majors preparing to enter professions as musicians, theatre and visual artists or arts educators, to those simply interested in the arts — and to members of the local community, who can attend multiple performances and exhibits throughout the year.
Outreach efforts to the local community include over 100 performances, concerts and exhibits, several camps, festivals and competitions hosted on campus, and the Sioux Falls arts scene which has so much to offer our campus community. Below you will find information about events offered by Augustana at the Washington Pavilion.
