Enriching the Arts through Advocacy & Participation 

Members of the UVA Arts Council provide advice and support for the arts at the University of Virginia. Arts Council members meet on Grounds twice annually with the Vice Provost for the Arts, arts faculty, and students to strengthen collaboration within the University arts community and encourage participation in the collective programs offered. Membership is secured through a nominations process for interested individuals who make a gift of $2,500 or more to the Arts Council. The Arts Council sponsors an annual grants program which provides awards up to $10,000 to arts projects across Grounds. For information on membership, contact Emma Terrry with UVA Arts at emma@virginia.edu. During their biannual meetings on Grounds, Arts Council members enjoy special, behind-the-scenes opportunities to hear from University experts about new projects in the arts and to engage with arts faculty and guest artists.

Individuals who make a gift to the Arts Endowment of $100,000 or more are invited to serve a five-year trustee term to advise the Vice of the Provost on the use and strategic investment of endowment earnings.
