The annual Celebration of Women in the Arts showcases women’s talents and contributions to the arts. The Women’s Center has sponsored this program for more than 25 years. Celebration of Women in the Arts is the first program to be hosted by the UNF Women’s Center. The foundation for Celebration of Women in the Arts was laid in 1987 and has grown significantly since then.
Past year’s celebrations have ranged from poetry readings to film reviews and discussion. The 1990 Celebration of Women in the Arts program showcased various art forms including poetry readings, dance, musical performances and visual arts. Dance Bridge performed the musical “Cinderella a Tale of Survival" in 1995. It was written by feminist, composer and poet, Ferron and directed by Krissy Keefer. In 2010, ZapStar, featuring Rebecca Zapen, treated the audience to a musical performance. The 2011 Celebration of Women in the Arts featured musical performances and vocalists by the UNF Jazz Combo, Azschrielle Jackson and Wink "n" a Smile. "Rena J Experience" and "Hard to Handle All Girl Band" performed the Nov. 16, 2012 Celebration of Women in the Arts.
Past Celebrations have included poetry readings, musical offerings, photographic exhibitions, dance performances, theatrical performances, visual arts, wearable art, book signings, film festivals and workshops.
