Walz to BOR: Please support UAS Performing Arts and Culture Center
During public testimony at the BOR meeting in Juneau September 27.
Professor of History Robin Walz recently appealed to the UA Board of Regents to support a performing arts and cultural center as part of the UAS Master Plan. During public testimony at the BOR meeting in Juneau September 27, Walz stressed partnerships between UAS and local arts organizations including the Juneau Symphony and Perseverance Theatre for the Fall Evening at Egan Lecture series and the Spring Sound and Motion Arts series.
He noted that a half dozen faculty are presenting during this year’s Evening at Egan lecture series including Ernestine Hayes talk, “What shall we do with our histories?” (November 2).
“What we don't have,” Walz told the BOR, “is a good venue for these programs.” Walz said currently used are “makeshift” venues- the Egan classroom lecture hall and the bottom floor of the library.
