WCU Bardo Arts Center offers virtual opportunities

Press release from Western Carolina University:

The arts have an incredible power to inspire us and bring us together. The arts do this in many ways – emotionally, intellectually, spiritually – just to name a few. Now more than ever, we must also look to the arts to inspire us and bring us together, virtually.

We are working on providing a variety of digital experiences to ensure the enjoyment of the arts remains present in all of our lives, even during these difficult times.


Visit our Facebook Page to get a unique 360° view of the Curious Terrain exhibition and view a selection of close-up shots from the exhibition as well.

Join us for a virtual talk with Curious Terrain exhibiting artist and pilot Alex S MacLean, along with an environmental talk from James T. Costa, Executive Director of the Highlands Biological Station and WCU Professor of Evolutionary Biology. Q&A included! This free virtual experience will be held via Zoom, more details to come.

52nd Annual Juried Undergraduate Exhibition
Although this exhibition was only on display for a short time before we had to close, we hosted a wonderful reception and awards ceremony for the event! Check out the Facebook album here!
