Who we are
Arts Everywhere is a comprehensive initiative at UNC to make the arts a fundamental part of the University culture and daily campus life. Through innovative programs with campus and community partners, Arts Everywhere harnesses the unique power of the arts to inspire curiosity, provoke change, and promote a more creative Carolina.
What we do
Spaces to create and reflect
Morrison Art Studio is a place where you can unleash your inner artist with the use of all the free art supplies you’ll need!
The Studio is now open Monday-Sunday from 3-8 pm! Sign up for the Morrison Art Studio listserv to stay up to date on the latest updates and upcoming events!
Short Story Dispensers
Did you know that we have 8 touch-free short story dispensers on campus and in the community and anyone can submit a piece to be published in one? Plus, if you’re not on campus to print a story from a machine, you can still peruse them online! Follow Short Story UNC on Instagram for the latest news!
This monthly concert series with the UNC Department of Music highlights student music groups at different locations across campus. Fill out this form if you’re interested in being featured!
To keep our campus and community safe, we couldn’t hold in-person exhibits last year. However, we wanted to find a way to bring art to the community so we partnered with the Carolina ARVR Club and the Downtown Partnership to create an interactive virtual art exhibit.
Watch out for some new murals coming to campus this Fall! Until then, here are the two newest pieces of art that were installed last year!
We love supporting students when they come to us with their ideas or apply for project support through our Student Arts Innovation Grant! Read about a few past projects such as the exhibit Intimate Economies by Krysta Sa (’21) and the play, sons that wear dresses and mothers that love sweet potatoes by Gage Tarlton (’20).
And we have to mention Arts Everywhere Day!
A campus wide celebration of the arts in which we engage the campus community with diverse arts experiences, transform campus spaces into creative hubs, and raise awareness of the breadth and depth of the arts at UNC.
There’s an arts experience around every corner thanks to our wonderful arts partners and friends on campus! We encourage you to get to know them by perusing their websites or getting involved in our Social Media Challenge on Instagram!
Together, we look forward to bringing you opportunities to learn, engage & experience the arts at UNC!
