Arts Day is an annual Fall event held to celebrate the cross-curricular integration, practice and study of the arts within our broad liberal arts curriculum. We have dedicated the day to recognize, in part, how the arts are tied to the disciplines taught at Wilson College, and why it is important to appreciate these connections.
Our hope is that students, as well as members of the greater community, will see more clearly how the arts are bound to all facets of our lives, and recognize the importance of continued study and support for the arts in our society.
Throughout the day, participants will have the opportunity to view exhibits, haiku, demonstrations, and attend lectures, workshops, and performances. Activities usually begin around 10 a.m. with the opening reception of the Student Exhibition, followed by a variety of events that lead participants to all corners of our campus.
The day usually ends with lectures or workshops on everything from women in art, to soap making, to architectural tours of campus, to dressage performances by the Wilson College Drill Team. All events are free and open to the public.
