Join the STUDIO Committee at 6:15pm on Thursday, March 29th for the fifth annual Arts Panel where arts leaders from UVA will share how they are using the arts and addressing issues of racism and diversity in their work, as a means of facilitating dialogue, uniting the Charlottesville and University communities, and healing the wounds caused by recent events.
