Arts Month celebrates the arts across the Wilson curriculum. Faculty, staff and student organizations host and sponsor events during Wilson’s annual celebration of the arts. It is a time to explore, learn and exalt the arts in all we study. A work of art contains subject, form and/or content. These attributes can be found in any discipline at Wilson: mathematics, chemistry, history, education, biology, political science, foreign languages and oh yeah, visual and performing arts! 

During Arts Month, community members will have the opportunity to see exhibits and performances, participate in art activities, and consider the numerous ways in which the arts impact our lives. All events are free and open to the public. 

Faculty, staff and student organizations - submit your event for Arts Month here.

Ever really look at art? One object for 15 minutes, for two hours? What can we experience with sustained attention? 

Let’s find out! Come to Saturation: A Year in the Life faculty exhibit in the Cooley Gallery in the Library at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 11, (limit of four viewers at a time). For an hour we will look at art at a safe distance from each other. Stay as long or little as you like, spend time with different pieces but plan to get deep into it while you are there. Chairs provided. 

Of course, you can always do this on your own. We may do this again in the futue.  Here is an article to find out more about Slow Art.
