Notable Nights

Dear Friends,

Due to the ongoing and swiftly changing situation with the coronavirus, the HBU School of Fine Arts Notable Nights Friend and Fundraising Dinner will be cancelled for this year. If you have already purchased your ticket or tickets, refunds will be given.

We had anticipated announcing our brand new Friends of the Arts initiative at this year’s dinner.  Please keep a look out for a digital communication that will provide you with further information about this exciting new initiative.

Thank you for your continued support of the fine and performing arts at HBU.

Friday, April 3, 2020 in HBU’s Morris Cultural Arts Center  – Cancelled 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The School of Fine Arts at HBU cordially invites you to the inaugural, school-wide, Notable Nights Dinner, a friend-raising event that celebrates the artistic work of the students, faculty, and staff from
the Department of Visual Arts, Department of Music, and Department
of  Cinema, Media Arts and Writing.

The School of Fine Arts at HBU’s mission is to mentor and educate students towards professional excellence in artistic creation for the glory of God. And we’re doing just that— training young men and
women for craft excellence in their chosen field so that they
may move the cultural needle towards something greater than
all of us. The work we do in the School of Fine Arts has never
been more important. And to do it, we need your support!

With the launching of the school-wide Notable Nights Dinner, we will also be launching the Friends of the Arts at HBU, an exciting affinity organization whose purpose it is to build and sustain the work of the School of Fine Arts. More information will be presented that evening concerning the FOA.

Cultural Arts Center on the HBU Campus. This is a formal dinner with

presentation of fantastic student work from all departments and programs, along with the opportunity to bid on silent auction items, artist experiences, and the like. Attire for this event is semi-formal.
