Texas Tech University's J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts (TCVPA) houses the School of Art, the School of Music and the School of Theatre & Dance. Each school gives students, faculty, staff and visiting artists the opportunity to exhibit and perform works on campus and in the community throughout the year.
