The Lively Arts maintains the only official events calendar for the College of Fine Arts. It includes all performances and exhibits that are presented by the departments and programs within the College that are open to the general public.
Over the summer months, we take calendars provided by the departments and enter those items by the beginning of August, earlier when possible. Once those are on the calendar, we will e-mail all Fine Arts faculty and staff members asking them to make sure their event is listed and is accurate. After that process is complete, it will be the responsibility of the faculty and staff leading an event to make sure that new events are sent to us along with any corrections or changes throughout the year. Those can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is critical that this calendar remains current and accurate, as it is the primary source for the must recent information for literally thousands of people. Therefore, we ask that you submit calendar items, changes, and updates in a timely manner, preferably a minimum of one month in advance.
It is simple. Just e-mail email@example.com immediately after confirming the information and include who, what, when, and where. A short description is also very helpful. Your event will be included on the Central Calendar as well as on your department’s calendar in addition to the Lively Arts calendar. If, at anytime, you see any mistakes with your event, please e-mail us right away. This calendar is also sent monthly to about 75 media sources and local offices.
We can include graduate thesis exhibits that are presented in Kipp Gallery as well as Acorn Project Honors productions on the Lively Arts’ calendar. For these events, and to ensure accuracy and proper communication, the request for these events to be included should come from a faculty member and not the student. However, undergraduate events such as regular Acorn Project Productions, student exhibits, and student music recitals will not be included. At the department’s discretion, these events can be entered by the department for their calendar or a listing on their webpage. Due to the history of these to change often, they should not be included on the Central Calendar at any time.
Departments do often maintain calendars for internal use. These are not official event calendars and may or may not be accurate. Do not use these for event purposes or share them them with the public. Always refer to the official online calendar, as that is the one that is seen by literally thousands of people.
We send an electronic version of the calendar to over 75 media and information sources on or around the 10th of every month. This is one of the many reasons it is important to make sure your event is included and is accurately listed.
