George Mason’s year-old College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) invites the campus community to “Celebrate the Arts” on Thursday, Sept. 19, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Mason Hall Atrium Gallery.

The celebration kicks off with the unveiling of a new semester-long installation in Atrium Gallery, curated by George Mason’s gallery director, Kirby Malone. A group of performances by the individual academic departments follows in the Concert Hall starting at 7:30 p.m. with remarks by the dean. The evening ends with a salsa party in the Concert Hall, with music provided by local musicians Sin Miedo.

“Ours is a community of artists, actively engaged in the learning, teaching, practice, and development of a wide variety of art forms–all working in proximity to each other in an atmosphere of collaborative exploration,” says Bill Reeder, CVPA dean. “It is this collective effort that served as the impetus for the Sept. 19 program.”
