Arts Board

The Arts Board of the University of Virginia is a student-run board whose mission it is to present an outstanding artist, performance, and/or exhibition each year in a three-year rotation that includes music, visual arts, and drama. The program was created to raise students’ awareness of and appreciation for the arts. Its purpose is three-fold:

  1. To produce an arts event that will raise awareness of the arts and be an event that will have an impact on the student body,
  2. To involve students in the presentation and administration of a national/international-scale arts event and residency, and
  3. To provide an opportunity for students to interact with the arts presenter(s) selected to perform/present/exhibit.

The Arts Board is a cooperative effort between the McIntire Department of Music, the McIntire Department of Fine Art, the University of Virginia Art Museum, the Department of Drama, Vice Provost for the Arts, the Office of the Dean of Students, Student Activities, and the University Programs Council. The Arts Board is composed of twelve students and two faculty members. The student members include six from the presenting department, two students representing the arts from University Programs Council, and four students at-large. The faculty advisors include a representative from the presenting department and an advisor from the Office of the Dean of Students Student Activities.
