Enhancement of the Arts


The arts play a critical role in developing well-rounded students in addition to enriching quality of life. The Seidler gift will enhance the academic and community programs in the Visual Arts and Theatre as it will stimulate artistic creativity, improve the academic experience, encourage new career opportunities, and add to Southwest Florida's artistic and cultural vitality. In Art, the funds will provide a variety of cultural experiences not previously afforded, such as: host visiting artists and art professionals; enhance the breadth, depth and quality of future art exhibitions; create opportunities that expand cultural literacy and broaden artistic horizons; and showcase students and faculty work beyond campus. In theatre, the gift will improve set design and introduce students to professional performances and companies.
