UVA Arts empowers a community committed to creativity, discovery, curiosity, and service, providing a highly engaging and unique experience for students, faculty, and community members. Led by Vice Provost for the Arts, we foster this community by facilitating opportunities for innovative research, captivating performances, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and artistic excellence. The Fralin Museum of Art, Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, the Virginia Film Festival, Heritage Theatre Festival, & WTJU are just a few of the rich, diverse programs that we support and represent.
We believe that a strong and vibrant arts landscape enriches each student’s University experience and lifelong learning and serves as an important bridge between UVA and the Charlottesville community. There are many opportunities to join this vibrant community of UVA Arts supporters and enhance the arts experience on Grounds
I think the Arts speak to the full range of the human condition, which is on vivid display right now, sorrow and joy, tragedy and triumph, selfishness and selflessness, and it’s a time for us, through the Arts, I think to connect as a community because the Arts remind us of the transcendent and the enduring.
