Moving forward after Arts Everywhere Day, UNC has a long term goal of increasing interest in the arts.

Despite Arts Everywhere initiative, UNC arts staff feels neglected by University

Arts initiatives like Arts Everywhere are creating a public platform for the arts at UNC, integrating them into campus life through new events, performances and installations of public art. But despite this visible appreciation for the arts, there are still signs of internal neglect. Many arts facilities on campus are in disrepair and have been for years. Sabine Gruffat, associate professor of studio art at UNC, pointed out that there’s no public space on campus for contemporary art.
