The Princeton Atelier

The Princeton Atelier, founded in 1994 by Toni Morrison, Nobel laureate and Princeton’s Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Humanities Emerita, brings emerging and accomplished artists to campus for intensive collaborations with students and faculty.

Endowed in 2009 through a generous gift from an anonymous donor, its offerings have included "Movement for Musicians" with choreographer Kate Weare; and "Bodies and Guitars: Choreographic and Musical Structures" with composer David Lang, co-founder and artistic director of New York's Bang on a Can music festival and recipient of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music.

“It is the work — its toughness, its pleasure, beauty, experimentation — that makes the Atelier an unusual academic model.”

—Toni Morrison, founder of the Princeton Atelier and the Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Humanities Emerita
