Spotlight on the Arts

October 31, 2013
by Jere W. Morehead, President

The second annual Spotlight on the Arts is November 7-15, with more than 60 events spanning the full range of performing, visual and literary arts at UGA.  This event draws attention to the important role that the arts play at a public research university by encouraging us to think more deeply about beauty, humanity and creativity.  I attended – and enjoyed very much – several events in the 2012 Spotlight and plan to do the same this year.

A university cannot be truly great without a strong, vibrant arts program.  The students, faculty and staff in the arts at UGA are among the best in the nation, and I am looking forward to the 2013 Spotlight on the Arts.
