Arts Society

Founded nearly 30 years ago, the Arts Society’s mission is to support creativity, award winning talent, performances, community outreach, and student scholarship. Supporters do so by generously donating their time, money and partnership to the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Because of the Arts Society, the College of Visual and Performing Arts continues to provide over 100 scholarships for young artists each year. In addition to scholarship support, our donors help student artists participate in college touring ensembles, study abroad opportunities, international conferences and guest artist residencies.

Your gift of any amount to any department, program or initiative within the College of Visual and Performing Arts earns you recognition in our Arts Society, including access to performance and exhibit announcements, invitations to special events, and opportunities to meet the artists. Recognition in the Arts society is based on total annual giving to the College of Visual and Performing Arts (July 1 – June 30).
