ASHLAND, OH– The College of Arts and Sciences at Ashland University has released its annual Arts Guide, which highlights multiple arts events for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The Arts Guide offers a comprehensive view of the Ashland University Theatre season, Department of Music concerts and special events, and Coburn Art Gallery exhibitions. 

Arts patrons are encouraged to use the Arts Guide as they plan their cultural events as a one-stop reference guide which includes events from August 27 through May 17.

Dr. Dawn Weber, dean for the College of Arts & Sciences, encourages patrons to "Use the Arts Guide as you plan your cultural activities for the year. Please join us for an unforgettable experience as we celebrate life through the Arts!" 

Inside the Arts Guide, patrons will find descriptions of each event, information about the University's various venues, ticket prices and ordering information. The publication also lists various web and Facebook pages for patrons to visit throughout the year for up-to-date schedules including additions and changes which occasionally occur with live events.
