Friends of the Arts
The arts play a vital role in fostering creativity, collaboration and learning at Davidson.
Members of Friends of the Arts support the visual, performing and literary arts at Davidson College. Because of the generosity of our members, the college offers dynamic programs that enhance the academic curriculum at the college and expand audiences' awareness of and accessibility to the arts in our community. Specifically, faculty and student projects in the music, theatre, visual and literary arts are supported by Friends of the Arts.
The artist-in-residence program is also supported by Friends of the Arts and it remains essential to the creative life of the college. The college is proud to host renowned guest vocalists, musicians, dance troupes and theatre companies from around the world as part of the Smith Artist Series and Concert Series.
Davidson hosts traveling gallery exhibits, student and faculty works, and our own extensive permanent collection of visual art at the Katherine and Tom Belk Visual Arts Center. And throughout the academic year, our exceptional Davidson students share the stages, contribute to the galleries and reach into the community as part of the many performances, exhibitions, demonstrations and lectures.
