Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will host Arts Day 2014 on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Schmidt Arts Center, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. Arts Day 2014 complements the University’s Admissions Open House which also will take place that morning. A variety of activities will provide an in-depth look into the diversity of art programs and degrees within the College of Arts and Letters. The event is free and open to the public.
Arts Day welcomes prospective high school students, their families, teachers, school administrators and the general public to spend an afternoon on the Boca Raton campus exploring the exciting options available. Highlights include 30-minute, student led-tours of the music, theater, dance, visual arts, and University Galleries’ facilities. Other highlights of the afternoon include:
The Schmidt Center Public Space will be part of the tours and will be open during the event. Currently, two installations occupy the space: Miami-based sound artist Gustavo Matamoros sound scape “Bats & Insects” and Penelope Umbrico’s photo-based installation that includes more than 4,000 appropriated images of sunsets from Flickr. At the Schmidt Center Gallery, an in-progress contemporary photography installation will be on view.
Arts Day offers an opportunity to tour facilities, watch students and staff install an exhibition, go backstage, listen and see rehearsals occurring in music and dance, and much more.
