The Celebration of the Arts Day

Thank you to all who came out and supported The Celebration of the Arts Day on Tuesday, April 24th 2012.

Mission Statement:

The arts serve a vital function in society and human history, one we can easily overlook despite the presence of the arts in our everyday lives. From some of the earliest examples of cave paintings to Warhol's soup cans, we have always been trying to find ways to describe and define our relationship to the world around us. As is true with many facets of life, we must sometimes take a step back to be able to see what is right in front of us. We believe that the arts provide an essential means of gaining perspective. It is our obligation as an institution to ready our students for independent and successful living, and it is absolutely integral that the arts are recognized as an important part of this preparation process.

The purpose of the Celebration of the Arts Day is to highlight our students' creative ambition and drive and to give them a chance to showcase their hard work and inspiration. Since creativity and innovation do not come in a single form or medium, our showcase highlights student work from a diverse range of genres; including music, poetry, theatre, visual art and more at the Celebration of the Arts Day. We cordially invite you to join us in showing appreciation and support of our artistic student population, and spread the word that the Performing and Fine Arts are alive and well at Utica College.
