The Milwaukee area and Mount Mary University embrace and support artists and creativity. As a fine art student, you can participate in many activities outside of class and in the community.


Latin for "to make, create, produce," CREO is an annual celebration of creativity that showcases student work from Mount Mary fine art, fashion, graphic design, art therapy and interior design programs. CREO is forward-thinking and ever-developing. It's an opportunity for a cross-generational audience to experience a cross-disciplinary slice of Milwaukee's creative talent.

Fine art students plan and display their work in a gallery space at CREO each year, teaching them important skills in how to hang a show, prepare for an exhibit, promote a show and host an artist reception. The event attracts hundreds of visitors and art enthusiasts each year.
