Arts Madness Spring 2013
Arts in Action Logo

Arts Madness week is returning this spring with a consolidated vision and increased enthusiasm from all parties involved. The goal of the week as a whole is to increase accessibility and visibility of the arts to all University members, to build bridges between arts groups often isolated from one another, and to raise general enthusiasm for the arts! Most of all, the week is a general celebration of UVa’s artistic communities and talent. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!
