Arts Elevate. Utah State University’s 2017- 2018 Year of the Arts spotlights the unique power of the arts to illuminate, transform, and inspire the human spirit. University and community partners work together to craft a year-long schedule of events focused on the arts from various points of view.

With special events highlighting the work of faculty and students from different disciplines, in recognition of the Chase Fine Art Center’s 50th anniversary, and in celebration of other significant anniversaries, the Year of the Arts showcases the breadth, depth, power, and purpose of artistic exploration and expression at USU across colleges, departments, and regional campuses.

The Year of the Arts began June 2017 with the 50th anniversary of Lyric Repertory Theatre company and will end December 2018.

The term communitas invokes the fundamental spirit of community. And it is in this spirit that the Department of Art + Design presents a year-long lecture series with a wide range of artists, designers, and scholars whose work and lives promote the values of equality, diversity, and togetherness. These lectures are free and open to the public in addition to being offered to students for credit. (ART 3710/ .5 cr) All lectures take place at 5PM in the Caine Performance Hall.
