Main Content

The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) School of Performing and Visual Arts presents its inaugural Revelry event, a multi-arts project that boasts over 40 events on Feb.15-23 at various locations.

The USM School of Performing and Visual Arts will dedicate nine days to special programming of artistic and creative activities, including master classes, workshops, guest and visiting artists, family-friendly events, and formal productions.

“This has been a great opportunity for the dance, art & design, and theatre programs to collaborate in creating events that will help share what we do with our communities and open up our faculty, staff, and majors in the school to what we are doing as a whole,” said Professor Stacy Reischman Fletcher. “We are putting what we do in new places of the school, such as dance in the gallery and textile dyeing in the ceramics studio.”

Another aspect of Revelry is to reveal the “behind the scenes” in the classrooms, studios, and rehearsals of USM through open observation times and tours. There will also be events offered during lunch and in the early evenings.

“This has been a wonderful way for USM faculty, staff, and students to build our community of visual and performing artists,” said Fletcher. “I could not be prouder of the people who have worked hard to make this happen.”
