UI Arts Share program 1997-98 artist roster set and available

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Arts Share program's 1997-98 artist roster is now set, and the program is accepting requests for artists. The Arts Share program provides arts education opportunities to schools and communities throughout the state of Iowa and the Midwest region. Those interested in sponsoring an event are encouraged to contact the office now at (319) 335-1618.

The artist roster comprises faculty members from the UI School of Art and Art History, the School of Music, the dance and theatre departments, and the Writers' Workshop. Many Arts Share artists have performed throughout the United States and abroad. Graduate students who attend UI graduate programs in the arts may also participate if recommended by a faculty member.

Programs are available for students from kindergarten to college, as well as for adults and community groups. All programs are identified by age-appropriateness, and many presentations are accompanied by teaching guides and materials.

Arts Share artists and ensembles are affordable. The Arts Share program can assist with expenses for schools and organizations with scholarship funds made possible through the UI Foundation and corporate grants.

An Arts Share brochure will be available in late September. Call 319-335-1618 to arrange an event or request a brochure. Arts Share is located at 1004 Voxman Music Building, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242.
