CVPA Andrew Ross Visiting Artist Fund
"When I established the guest artist fund, I wanted it to reach across all of the arts represented by the College of Visual and Performing Arts...to me, there is so much potential for cross-pollination among the many arts disciplines, as evidenced by students who double-major, major and minor, or just take a few classes among the five departments of CVPA. I believe growing this fund will help it better achieve this goal. And, I hope other patrons of Radford's wonderful variety of visual and performative arts will agree."
- Andrew Ross
This fund will bring guest artists to the Radford campus and will benefit all CVPA programs, including art, dance, design, music, theatre and cinema. These arts professionals not only bring high-quality performances, exhibitions and lectures to the campus community, they also work closely with students in the classroom. The overall purpose of the program is for students to explore self-expression and scholarship, build knowledge, acquire skills and develop an understanding of how to articulate their creativity under the demonstrating and guiding mentorship of professional artists. Having access to artists from the “real world” provides students with networking opportunities and valuable perspective for developing career goals.
