New “Arts on the Hill” Series Debuts at Carr’s Hill with Moving, Live Performances

 

Fragrant winter jasmine and unseasonably warm temperatures welcomed arts enthusiasts to the residence of University of Virginia President Jim Ryan Wednesday afternoon for “Arts on the Hill,” a free, new series of performances for students, faculty and staff.

The brainchild of Ryan, Provost Liz Magill and Vice Provost for the Arts Jody Kielbasa, “Arts on the Hill” will be a regular occurrence during the academic year, with free tickets available through a lottery.

“Welcome to the first edition of “Arts on the Hill,” Ryan told the crowd. “It’s a very simple concept. About once a month we are going to invite artists, either from among our faculty or students or visiting artists to perform at Carr’s Hill. This is a way to showcase the amazing talent we have here on Grounds among our faculty and students and also to take advantage of the fact that Charlottesville is a real crossroads for incredible artists coming through.” (READ MORE)
