About Spotlight on the Arts at UGA
Presented by the University of Georgia Arts Council, Spotlight on the Arts is scheduled for Nov. Nov. 6 – 17 and includes dozens of exhibitions and performances in the visual, literary and performing arts. Many of the events are free or discounted for UGA students, and the annual Spotlight on the Arts Family Day will be presented free of charge Nov. 16.

Highlights of this year’s festival include “By Our Hands,” a special performance that incorporates dance, media and dramatic performance to explore issues of race and incarceration. The Georgia Museum of Art will host five exhibitions during Spotlight 2019, including quilts created by artist Mary Lee Bendolph.
