We can’t believe it’s already the start of the new semester! We warmly welcome back all the returning students and give a big shout out to all our new Tar Heels! Although Fall 2020 will look and feel a little different, we will continue to work to bring you creative arts opportunities and experiences on campus and at home. In the meantime, we invite you to get to know us a little better – who we are and what we do – below!
In a nutshell
Arts Everywhere is a comprehensive initiative at UNC that aims to make the arts a fundamental part of the University culture and daily campus life.
Short Story Dispensers
Did you know that anyone can submit a piece to be published in our Short Story dispensers? And if you’re not on campus to print a story from a machine, you can still peruse stories online! Stay tuned, because our dispensers will soon have touch-free features!
This monthly concert series with the UNC Department of Music highlights student ensembles at different locations across campus in a 15-minute informal performance setting. If you’re interested in participating, we’re accepting proposals until August 16th for our virtual First Fridays this fall!
Pop-up exhibits and performances
We had some great pop-up exhibits last school year that had us teaming up with our campus and community partners, students, alumni, and community members! Read more about our Every Color of the Rainbow exhibit from February!
Spaces to create and reflect
Morrison Art Studio is a place where you can to take part, make art, and unleash your inner artist with the use of all the free supplies you’ll need to paint and draw! There’s also an MFA artist-in-residence who serves as a resource for anyone who uses the space. Learn more about Morrison Art Studio and stay up to date with the latest news, updates, and guidelines! More details for Fall 2020 will be coming soon!
Stay tuned for some new murals that will be created this fall! Until then, here are a few of our favorites!
And who doesn’t love Arts Everywhere Day!
A campus-wide celebration of the arts!
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!
No matter who you are, where you are, or what your “artistic” skill level is, we encourage you to stay creative this semester! We look forward to bringing you opportunities to learn, engage, and experience the arts at Carolina!
