Collage Concert to ring in Open House festivities

For more information visit

As part of Open House, the School of Fine Arts will celebrate its diverse, talented community with the fourth annual Collage Concert 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19, at the Lied Center.

The Collage Concert will showcase works by KU fine arts visual- and performing-arts students and faculty in 90 nonstop minutes. The concert will bring together the departments of art, design, and music and dance, as well as the Lied Center of Kansas.

Proceeds will benefit the School of Fine Arts. The idea behind the event is symbolic of collages, artistic compositions made of a variety of materials and objects.

The evening’s festivities will begin with the Fine Arts Advisory Board’s pre-concert reception and silent auction. This third annual fund-raiser will benefit the Fine Arts Educational Enhancement Fund.

Area artists, members of the Fine Arts Advisory Board and notable figures in Lawrence’s art community, including regional artists Louis Copt and Jane Pronko; Lawrence Arts Center director Ann Evans; and arts editor Mindie Paget of the Lawrence Journal-World, have created and donated artwork and collages. Faculty from the School of Fine Arts also have donated special items to the auction, including voice lessons with Joyce Castle, professor of music; ceramic lessons with David Vertacnik, associate professor of design; and a digital imaging demonstration from Peter Thompson, professor of art.
