Visual & Performing Arts College Fair Comes To Dillard

Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs give colleges, universities, festivals, conservatories and other postsecondary institutions the opportunity to meet with thousands of college-bound students and their parents.
For the growing number of students pursuing a college degree in music, theater, art, dance, and other related disciplines, this event offers a unique opportunity to get a head start on planning for college.


Student registration is an easier and much faster way for colleges and universities to get your information so that they can follow up with you after the fair. When you register, you enter your contact information, academic interests, graduation year and your high school and then receive your own personalized barcode. Once you print this barcode out and take it to the fair, college representatives can scan them as a way to retrieve this information from you, eliminating the need to fill out information cards.

Senior Art Show – Jan 20

Dillard Center for the Arts proudly presents The Senior Art Exhibit this year for students Charisma Bacon, Corey Lovett, Piero Penizzotto, Lara Pinheiro, and Johanna Sapicas. The opening reception will be held in the DCA Art Gallery on Wednesday, January 20th from 4pm – 6:30pm. This is a FREE event.

The students’ artwork will be “FOR SALE” and all monies collected go directly to the five students to help offset the high costs of college/university study (applications, supplies, and books/supplies). The exhibit is a student run production, in which they create the invitations, advertise, prep the gallery, hang the artwork with labels, provide refreshments, and sell their artwork. Please plan to come out with family and friends for a wonderful evening of art and refreshments to encourage these young talented students.
