UVA Arts

The Arts are an essential component of the University, its mission, and are a leading presence in the Charlottesville community. The Vice Provost for the Arts catalyzes and facilitates research, creative production, and service in the arts departments and schools, with The Fralin Museum of Art, Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, the Virginia Film Festival, Heritage Theatre Festival & WTJU Radio, and by student-driven arts organizations. The Arts are crucial to the residential experience at UVA, enriching us all while inspiring our students to innovate, create, collaborate, explore, and discover. UVA Arts offers an array of performances, exhibitions, and creative opportunities for students, faculty, staff, visitors, and our entire community. Significant outreach efforts include the President’s Speaker Series for the Arts, artist residencies, and public-facing programs designed to cultivate a vibrant community that promotes creative expression and to augment and enrich the artistic offerings across the Commonwealth, nation, and world.
