Arts Council announcement from President Hatch and Vice Provost Sutton
March 23rd, 2016
Dear Faculty and Staff,
The Wake Forest University Arts Council campaign begins March 14th, and will continue through April 15th. The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County continues to become more engaged with the community by asking the community to become more engaged with them. The theme for 2016 is “Join Us at the Table,” with the idea of inviting people to share ideas, help sustain their current programs, and create new ones. The Arts Council is listening and they want to make our community more creative and more beautiful by integrating innovative ideas.
We are a community of scholars and we understand the importance of a well-rounded education. The Arts Council provides arts and cultural enrichment opportunities to our students, faculty and staff beyond the classroom and our campus. The diversity of artists and cultural organizations that The Arts Council supports creates opportunities for the culturally rich community where we live, work, and continue to learn.
We will celebrate the arts at the next Provost’s Happy Hour at Zick’s from 4:00 – 5:30 pm on Thursday, April 7. Art Nouveau of Winston-Salem, the Arts Council’s young professional group, will also be in attendance providing information about how to get more involved in the arts community and promoting the upcoming independent music festival, Phuzz Phest.
We have some wonderful new incentives this year. For those who make a donation of $500 or more, we will have a drawing for a glassblowing class at The Olio. For those who make a gift of $250 or more, we will have a drawing for a pair of season tickets to the 2016-17 season of the WFU University Theatre.
We hope that you will consider making your donation to The Arts Council campaign so that they are able to continue these worthwhile projects in our community. The provided link will take you to a webpage where you will have cash, credit and payroll deduction options.
Thank you for your support of the Arts Council!
