Spotlight on the Arts 2020

Alan Flurry

The University of Georgia's Spotlight on the Arts festival returns for its ninth year with dozens of virtual events and exhibitions in the visual, literary, and performing arts through Nov. 20.

Highlights of this year's 17-day festival include performances from Grammy-winning singer Kathy Mattea, multimedia work presented by UGA Theatre, the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame keynote address, and several exhibitions at the Georgia Museum of Art and Lamar Dodd School of Art, among dozens of additional events featuring all aspects of the arts. Virtual exhibitions include the 2020 Shelter Projects created by UGA graduate students and community-based artists that reflect on their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, select units will host in-person performances and exhibitions that maintain social distancing.

An extraordinary calendar of events is available for every taste, opportunities to venture into the arts on campus to sample, support, participate and enjoy.

Great events for today include Pylon: Tourists in Rock n'Roll exhibit (ongoing) at the Special Collections Libraries, where Cortona: Celebrating 50 years of UGA Study Abroad is also on view.
