About the Michael and Andrea Stone series:
Through the generous support of local patrons Michael and Andrea Stone, the School of the Arts at the University of West Georgia hosts The Michael and Andrea Stone Visiting Artist Series. As part of our ongoing efforts to build and sustain a more creative community, the series typically features one nationally recognized artist each fall and spring semester, rotating among the programs in art, music, theatre, creative writing, and film.
Artists who come to campus through the series
- lead studio courses and master classes
- work closely with students, providing individual critiques;
- offer exhibitions or readings to the university and community;
- participate in social functions with local arts patrons and community members;
- and much more!
As such, The Michael and Andrea Stone Visiting Artist Series not only engages local artists and patrons in a creative, participatory community, but also encourages dialogue among arts disciplines, and between colleges and departments across campus. Most importantly, however, the series provides the local community and UWG students with direct access to acclaimed artists, elevating the level of discourse surrounding contemporary art and culture in Carrollton. Thanks to Michael and Andrea Stone, Carrollton is much more art forward.
