Spotlight on the Arts is underway

The University of Georgia Arts Council is celebrating its 10th annual Spotlight on the Arts festival this month with more than 60 events and exhibitions in the literary, performing and visual arts (schedule).

On Tuesday, the Student Spotlight was the centerpiece at Tate Plaza with student performers including an a cappella ensemble, theatre company, ballroom dance and a step team. UGA photographer Andrew Davis Tucker captured the scene in this gallery.

Highlights of the monthlong festival include Grammy-winning acts at the Performing Arts Center, a Signature Lecture by New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, a University Theatre production of “Rent,” Georgia Writers Hall of Fame events and a Signature Lecture panel discussion with Jennifer Crandall, creator the Emmy-nominated documentary project “Whitman, Alabama.”
