Spotlight on the Arts 2018

The University of Georgia will celebrate the visual, literary and performing arts on campus this November during the seventh annual Spotlight on the Arts festival, which features dozens of events and exhibitions Nov. 1-11.

The festival begins Nov. 1 with Student Spotlight performances from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tate Plaza. “Kaleidoscope: Spotlight on the Arts Opening Celebration,” a free showcase of performances in dance, music, theater and creative writing, follows at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Ars Center.
