Georgia Southern University to Host Exclusive Evening of the Arts
Georgia Southern University’s College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences will host Evening of the Arts, a unique event that will showcase art, theatre and music on Saturday, April 16 at 7 p.m. The inaugural event will be held at the University’s Center for Art & Theatre.
“This is the first time that Georgia Southern University has hosted such a unique event that features so many different elements,” said Michael Smith, Ph.D., dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences at Georgia Southern. “When we began planning the event, we wanted to provide guests with the opportunity to experience the full spectrum of art in one evening. Our goal is to make this one of the premier ‘must-attend events’ of the year in our region.”
The Evening of the Arts event will feature a variety of exhibits and performances including:
- String Trio Performance
- Georgia Southern Chorale Performance
- Black Box Theatre Performance
- Georgia Artist Collection
- University Gallery and Contemporary Gallery Tours
During the event, the University will also present a Patron of the Arts Award to former Georgia First Lady, Betty Foy Sanders.
The Evening of the Arts is designed to provide an elegant evening for individuals or couples interested in the arts. The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and also provide guests with the opportunity to tour galleries and experience first-class musical and theatrical performances.
“This is an opportunity to spend a nice evening in Statesboro while supporting the arts at Georgia Southern University,” said Smith.
Tickets for the exclusive event are $75 per person and may be purchased by contacting Amber Blair at the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences at: 912-478-1957, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Limited seating is available and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. All proceeds from the event will benefit the arts at Georgia Southern University.
