Arts & Letters Initiatives

The goal of the Arts and Letters Committee is to promote individual and community awareness of the various fields of artistic endeavors; to encourage the development of individual and collective skills in the liberal arts; to showcase those who possess talents which contribute to an increased sensitivity to and an appreciation of the beauty around us; and to support those organizations who foster artistic and related disciplines.

The Arts & Letters Committee organizes activities such as:

  • Poetry Cypher: A Crimson Carpet Experience
  • Artist Forum
  • Theatre and Movie Viewing Red Carpet Events
  • Support African-American Arts and Authors

In addition, the Arts and Letters Committee commissioned renowned local artist Alonzo Adams to paint "Priceless Moments" in 1993.
