CREO: Our annual celebration of the arts


Latin for "to make, create, produce," CREO is an annual celebration from Mount Mary University's School of Arts & Design showcasing student work from fashion, studio art, graphic design, interior design and art therapy that culminates in a student-run fashion show.

CREO is another example of how Mount Mary University lives its mission of being a Creative Campus — a place that recognizes the importance of creativity and nurtures a unique brand of talent that can improvise new ways of thinking.


CREO 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the Mount Mary University School of Arts and Design to cancel CREO, its annual celebration of student achievement. Plans are underway to develop creative alternative means to showcase student work.

The Student Designer Fashion Show will not take place on May 8; alternative plans are in progress that will feature the work of fashion design and merchandise management students. Follow @MountMaryFashion on Instagram to support the ongoing creative work of our students.

The Arts and Design Senior Exhibitions featuring the work of students in Studio Arts, Graphic Design, Interior Design and Art Therapy originally scheduled for April 27 to May 8 will be re-imagined in an online and print format. Watch this page for information.
