Special Projects

Special projects sponsored by the Peck School of the Arts call attention to a particular focus or issue for a specific period of time. Contributions help insure that the project goals can be achieved.

Year of the Arts

A significant special project to be undertaken by the Peck School is the coordination of the University's Year of the Arts to be celebrated during the 2012-2013 academic year. The Year of the Arts will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Peck School of the Arts and will celebrate the school's many accomplishments.

As a university-wide celebration, the Year of the Arts theme will inspire campus and community programs, events, activities and academic exploration throughout the year. The Peck School of the Arts will program core activities through its five departments, many in collaboration with campus and community partners. Every school and college as well as the university's many campus centers will incorporate the Year of the Arts theme into their activities. Collaboration with community arts and education organizations as well as businesses will provide further engagement and impact.
