Lecture & Fine Arts Series

The mission of the Lecture & Fine Arts Series at UW-Marathon County is to bring educational, culturally-enriching, high-quality, fine arts programs to students and community members throughout the year.

A student-centered committee fullfills this mission by creating a series that enhances a respect for racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in a multi-cultural world. The series is sponsored by the UWMC Student Fee Allocation Committee. As a result, ticket prices are always affordable, making the series the best arts bargain around.

Events include concerts, artist presentations and exhibits, film festivals, poetry readings, theater productions and much more! The Lecture & Fine Arts Series contracts with national caliber master-artists in all disciplines to conduct residencies, workshops and classroom presentation, in addition to public performances.
