A new academic year brings new opportunities for us to enjoy the arts as they come alive once again on our campus.
This year, I am excited for our University to resume a more traditional line-up of arts and culture events and programming. From art exhibitions, musical events, speaking engagements, theater performances, and visits to our world-renowned greenhouse, we welcome you back to enjoy the talents of our guest artists and our exceptional faculty, staff, and students.
We celebrate the arts for their ability to illuminate, to transform, and to inspire the human spirit. And in these tumultuous times, I am grateful for the way in which the arts continue to generate hope as we confront the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I encourage you to visit this page often to learn more about our upcoming events and to stay informed about the ways in which our return to live performances may be affected by current health and safety protocols at the time of a particular event.
