New source for UI arts events info
Main Page Content
Arts fans have a new, up-to-the-hour source for info about everything arts on the University of Iowa campus.
Arts Iowa— arts.uiowa.edu—provides a comprehensive online guide to exhibits, dance, film, music, theater, readings, and Hancher events, offering background information, photos, video, and complete schedule and ticket info.
It also includes handy links to websites for UI arts programs. Users can browse events by artistic medium or click the site’s calendar to see what’s happening on any given day.
“We wanted to provide a convenient one-stop home for details about arts events,” says Barry Butler, UI executive vice president and provost, whose office sponsored the project. “It’s a university-wide resource that makes this information much easier to find.”
Ticket sales for UI Division of Performing Arts events—theater, dance, and music—begin Aug. 22. through the Hancher Box Office.
The site includes a full year of listings, with new events and sponsors added all the time. Each event includes sharing options that let users post event info to Facebook or Twitter, or send via email.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Information Technology Services, and University Communication and Marketing provided development support for Arts Iowa. CLAS staff will manage the site.
