Since its founding in 1889, Converse has had a profound relationship with the arts. Our art department was developed in 1924 by renowned southern artists August and Irma Cook. Since then we’ve hosted some of the greatest performers of the 20th century in Twichell Auditorium, introducing fine arts instruction to generations of children, and producing dynamic new collaborations such as our recent original graphic-novel-styled opera. You could say the arts just run in our blood.
