College of Fine Arts Gala

CFA Gala

Join the University of Utah College of Fine Arts for a powerful virtual evening show highlighting the creative works and research of our students and faculty, celebrating the achievements of recent alumni, congratulating our scholarship recipients and thanking our generous scholarship donors. This event is free and everyone is welcome (no ticket or reservation required).

Emceed by Robert Scott Smith, who is both an alumnus of and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Theatre’s Actor Training Program, this hour-long program will provide a look at what education and research at the University of Utah College of Fine Arts look like in this unique moment in time. We won’t just see final works from each of our academic units (although some), but the process of making. The process of becoming.

The process of blooming.

We will also get to hear from three recent and already very accomplished alumni Ashley Chin-Mark (Ballet BFA and Strategic Communications BS, 2018), Stéphane Glynn (Film & Media Arts MFA, 2016) and Cece Otto (Actor Training Program BFA, 2018) on their time at the U and what incredible work they’re doing now.

The generous gifts of our benefactors have changed countless lives for the better, and we are honored to have the chance to articulate the impact scholarships can have on our students through the story of one incredible scholarship recipient, Pablo Ayala.
