The current exhibit in Silver Special Collections, "Work of Art: Dancing Together in Vermont," examines the process involved in creating diverse dance communities.

On March 4, Julian Barnett, artist-in-residence in UVM's Department of Theater and Dance, will give a performance/lecture highlighting his most recent professional work, shedding light on multicultural processes and contexts, and examining the role vulnerability has played in his choreographic life. 

 

Join us as we celebrate the launch of a new book by Stephen Terry and student research assistant Louis Augeri.
