FGCU Department of Visual and Performing Arts Presents 2009 Celebration of the Arts: FGCU Juried Student Art Exhibition and Theatre Opening
3/25/2009

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents the 2009 Celebration of the Arts, a fine art and theater exhibition presented by the students of FGCU on Wednesday, April 1 at the FGCU Arts Complex. The public is invited to an evening of the arts, food, and music, including the juried student art show, opening at 4 p.m., and the 8 p.m. opening of the theatre lab's production of "TL001: A Performance Constellation." Exhibitions and performances continue throughout April.

"TL001: A Performance Constellation," directed by assistant theater professor Michelle Hayford, will be the first installment of the FGCU Theatre Lab's original ensemble-created work. The performance is a collaborative creation, a form of theatre where the script originates not from a writer or writers, but from improvisatory work by a group of people, in this case FGCU theatre students.

Performances are Wednesday through Sunday, April 1-5, April 8-10, and April 15-18. Curtain opens at 8 p.m. for all performances except Sunday. Tickets are available by calling (239) 590-7268.

The Art Gallery is located inside the Arts Complex on FGCU's main campus. The University is located off Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, east of I-75 between exits 123 and 128. Parking is available in Lot 7 for gallery visitors, parking passes are available at the parking kiosk located at the University’s entrance.

For information, media representatives should contact Interim Director of the Art Gallery Anica Sturdivant at (239) 590-7199 or asturdiv@fgcu.edu.
