The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities (HCAH) supports the intellectual and artistic ambitions of faculty, students and staff, fostering collaboration, experimentation, and critical thought under the auspices of the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, the Tuttle Creative Programs, and other Center initiatives. Through a variety of seminars, symposia, working groups, arts and performance residences, and exhibitions, the Center works to cultivate interdisciplinary conversation, to bring together intellectual inquiry and artistic practice, and to engage ethical issues current at the college and in the wider public. Our initiatives reach beyond the local and familiar to connect with diverse communities of writers, artists, scholars, and performers, and with thinkers, innovators, and activists of all kinds.
The Hurford Center is a member of The Consortium of Humanities and Institutes (CHCI). Support for the Hurford Center comes from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the Mellon Postdoctoral Program and the Mellon Creative Residencies, the Leaves of Grass Foundation, the Kessinger Family Fund for Asian Performing Arts, the Koshland Humanities Center Directorship Fund, the E. Clyde Lutton '66 Memorial Fund for the Performing Arts, the Edwin E. Tuttle '49 Funds for the Arts, the Student Arts Fund, and Haverford's general endowment income.
