2014-15 Tucker-Boatwright Festival of Literature and the Arts

The University of Richmond’s 2014-15 Tucker-Boatwright Festival for Literature and the Arts was hosted by the Department of Art and Art History, in collaboration with University Museums. The programs, exhibitions, and projects created around this year’s festival engaged the campus and local community in examining how landscape and land use have been defined historically, and how we respond to the opportunities, challenges, and tensions inherent in the topics today.

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, there were exhibitions, student research projects, lectures, performances, poetry readings, video and movie screenings, artist residencies, and more.

The series also fostered opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration with such campus partners as Bonner Center for Civic Engagement; the Modlin Center for the Arts; Geography and the Environment; Theatre and Dance; University Facilities; and the Office of the Chaplaincy.
