Every night we gather to enjoy unique evening performances that make up our artist series. We invite guest artists from all different backgrounds and artistic disciplines to come perform for us and share in our GIA experience. Who are our guest artists? ...you may ask. Well you'll find out exactly who on the morning of the performance, so that its always a surprise. But in general, they are musicians, illustrators, sculptors, comedians, dancers, filmmakers, poets, songwriters, performers, creators, collaborators. On our beautiful Fine Arts Center stage, we will get to see visiting artists, local artists, alums, faculty, staff, and of course YOU in the student show (if you so choose). 

Our artist series is the highlight of every night at GIA. We come together to be inspired, to ask thoughtful questions, and to expose ourselves to many different artists and artistic genres.
