On your marks, get set, ARTS!

Next week is Arts Pass Dash on the University of Utah campus – and there is more than one reason U students should not miss it.

ACS 0196

Let’s spell it out.

What is Arts Pass Dash?

Arts Pass Dash is a three-day event where students can visit 16 campus locations to learn about arts offerings at the University of Utah, see pop-up performances, get swag, and enter to win prizes.

Locations include: The 5 academic units of the College of Fine Arts (Art & Art History, Dance, Film & Media Arts, Music, and Theatre), Utah Museum of Fine Arts, UtahPresents, ASUU, Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, Pioneer Theatre Company, and more!

You could win an iPad Pro. 

Just by visiting one of the 16 locations and swiping your UCard, you are entered in a drawing for prizes – and they aren’t shabby. The grand prize? An 11′ iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard to go with it. Can you imagine?

You will get free swag. 

T-shirts. Pop sockets. Hand sanitizer. Treats. Reusable coffee mugs. Tickets. 

Each Arts Pass Dash location will be offering swag and goodies to those who drop by. So you won’t just get info, you’ll get some awesome takeaways.

You will meet lots of friendly faces. 

One of the best things about the arts at the University of Utah are the wonderful people that make them happen. At Arts Pass Dash, you will meet passionate faculty, staff, and students who can answer your questions and get you excited about what’s upcoming this semester. Plus, at some of the featured locations you’ll see pop-up performances and demonstrations!

4. You may discover (or renew!) a creative curiosity. Plus, you will learn how to get involved right away. 

Maybe you are someone that is always on top of the latest opening or show. Or maybe you didn’t even know you could take ceramics, or classical guitar, or acting as a non-major. Maybe you are looking for ways to meet new friends or get involved around campus. No matter where you’re coming from, you will walk away gaining something from Arts Pass Dash. We are certain it will put a pep in your step.

5. You will learn how to find the arts at the U, and can therefore take advantage of the full campus experience. 

The arts at the University of Utah are not just for College of Fine Arts majors. No matter what you are pursuing, you can participate in the arts through seeing performances, visiting gallery exhibitions, attending screenings, taking non-major courses, auditioning for an ensemble, and more!

The Arts Pass program makes the arts that much more accessible to students through offering free or deeply discounted tickets. By going to Arts Pass Dash, you’ll physically familiarize yourself with campus, meet new people, and set yourself up for a year full of creativity, interaction, and engagement.
