ARTS by George!
The 15th annual ARTS by George! will be rescheduled to September 25, 2021 due to COVID-19.
You can find updates about the next year’s event on this web page and on the event’s Facebook page.
Each September, the seven academic disciplines in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the Mason Community Arts Academy, and the Green Machine Ensembles join forces to present the annual ARTS by George! benefit to raise funds for student scholarships and community arts programs.
Above: Highlights from ARTS by George! 2019
Students and faculty from each discipline collaborate in a series of behind-the-scenes showcase performances and exhibits in open studios and rehearsal halls of the deLaski Performing Arts Building. The event includes award-winning wine and restaurant stations from the top restaurants in the D.C. region, as well as a silent auction of arts-related items and experiences. The evening culminates in a gala performance by a soon-to-be announced guest artist, followed by an on-stage champagne and dessert reception with the artist. The annual event has collectively raised more than $1 million since it began in 2006. Learn more about ARTS by George! scholarship recipients.
