Arts @ ODU

Passion on Canvas and Stage...

One benefit of ODU being located in such a multi-cultural area is a very strong art program. Partnered with the College of Arts and Letters, the ODU Theatre and Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries provide both a place for students to express themselves through paintings or the stage as well as programs to help build an appreciation for the arts.

Gordon Art Galleries

ODU Gordon Gallery- Self-Taught Artist in Context

The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries is where distinguished artist's works are displayed right along side student's work in an exciting mixing bowl of art.



Watch emotion played out on stage in our Monarch Theatre. Here student productions rehearse and perform, as well as many regional and national acts.


Music Ensembles

The harmonies will dance upon your ear as ODU's premier instrument and vocal ensembles perform pieces from all different genres and time periods.
