The Arts at WT: A Subscription Series

Established in 2010, The Arts at WT is a donor engagement program that serves to showcase the creativity and share the exciting advancements taking place in the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities while providing support to College programs in a variety of ways. Each season, members are invited to attend six events that highlight a specific department or program. Every event is curated specifically for members of The Arts to offer a glimpse into the passions and disciplines of the five departments, accompanied by a signature cocktail buffet. A membership of $300 grants access for two people to these events and does much to foster the talent and hard work of the students and faculty.

Arts at WT 23-24 Season

 

2023-2024 Season

 

The Arts at WT will take you on a journey of the senses this year, offering subscribers an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the talents of WT faculty, students and alumni. 

With your membership, you’ll whoop it up with the Opera Cowgirls, celebrate the holidays with reserved seating at our always-sold-out Christmas concert, travel around the world with Study Abroad students, and revel in the artistry of our WT dancers. 

Plus, this season sees the return of two beloved traditions: A Live Cinema screening of Buster Keaton’s “The General” with orchestral accompaniment, and—among many WT arts alums—the fiery spectacle of Blind Bird Designs glassblowing on the patio of Mary Moody Northen Recital Hall. 

Only subscribers to The Arts at WT can experience all of these terrific opportunities. Join or renew now!

IMPACT

Contributions are made every year from The Arts at WT to four endowed scholarships empowering students both today and in the future. Additionally, this program funds unique opportunities like underwriting the annual Christmas Concert for broadcast on PBS and establishing the Dorothy Patterson Poetry Series. Most recently, our donors made possible the continuation of programs across the college with the purchase of supplies and equipment to create virtual and socially distant performances.
