Arts and Entertainment

We see the arts as a unique opportunity to reflect and enrich the human experience. To bridge cultures and to share a common language. And to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to dream big. We’re also not afraid to take risks in order to bring new art to the world. Students and faculty explore their craft here, honing it and pushing it to new levels of award-winning and thought-provoking expression that visitors from all over the state and nation come to experience. From literary to visual to performing, UNCG offers some of the best arts and entertainment available. Explore and be inspired.
