April 15 2019

They experienced, snapped and won! Thank you to everyone who entered our Spring 2019 Arts Pass contest! We had an incredible group of engaged students use their Arts Pass to enjoy the arts on campus. 

Our first place winner is @Sophiauhlhorn who used her Arts Pass to attend two art events on campus, Department of Theatre's production of The Rivals and the Modern Dance Student Concert. Our second place winner is Mellisa Manzano who also enjoyed the Department of Theatre's prodcut of The Rivals. Third place goes to Katie Williams who attended the School of Music event with Minetti Quartett Win. Congratulations you three!

Arts Pass is open to all fee-paying University of Utah students and includes screenings, performances, concerts, and exhibitions by our students and faculty, and also provides free or discounted access to the professional arts organizations on campus: UtahPresents, Pioneer Theatre Company, and the Utah Museum of Fine Art. 

Why do we make arts so accessible?

Because more and more research is showing the positive impacts of the arts on education. The findings are significant: exposure to the arts is linked with better critical thinking skills, greater social tolerance, a greater likelihood of seeking out art and culture in the future, and better workforce opportunities.
