We Value...

arts programming that brings us together as a campus and community.

The North Carolina High Country is a special place, where families have deep roots and where visitors find natural beauty, rich cultural traditions, and small town friendliness in great abundance. It is also home to a great university that values the arts as an essential element of higher education and quality of life. Every summer, An Appalachian Summer Festival brings together residents and visitors of all ages around a shared love of music, dance, theatre, film, and visual arts programming geared to almost every artistic taste and preference.

affordable access to the arts.

Key to the festival’s mission and identity is a commitment to affordable access. Ticketed performances are offered at prices substantially lower than prices for those same artists in other venues. The festival also offers a wide array of free and low-cost events designed to ensure access to quality arts programming for audiences of all ages.

Programming that elevates spirits, broadens horizons and expands our view of the world.

For some, it’s the stellar entertainment typically found only in big cities that the festival brings to our corner of the world each summer. For some, it’s the ability to enjoy world-class arts programming in a spectacular mountain setting. And for others, it’s about the festival’s mission to showcase artists who may not be familiar to us — but whose performances linger in our memories for years to come! “It is such a joy and privilege to meet new friends at festival events every summer – including local residents and visitors from across the nation who value quality arts programming and who delight in being with others who share this passion.” – Lynn Eisenberg, Festival Advisory Board

Three very different Palestinian women share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. Lalia, a criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, loves to burn off her workday stress in the underground club scene. Salma, slightly more subdued, is a DJ and bartender. Nur is a younger, religious Muslim girl who moves into the apartment in order to study computer science at the university. Nur is both intrigued and intimidated by her two sophisticated roommates. When her conservative fiancé visits, he is horrified by her secular friends, entreating her to hasten their marriage, leave Tel Aviv, and assume her rightful role as a dutiful wife. Despite their differences, these women find themselves doing the same balancing act between tradition and modernity, citizenship and culture, duty and freedom.

The Persistence of Weeds: hannah Cole

JUlY 6 - JanUarY 12, 2019, mezzanine gallerY

Hannah Cole, Chicory, 2016 Acrylic on canvas

Hannah Cole’s paintings are rooted in the unique experiences of her own life, and in conversation with the larger history of American painting. She paints the daily surroundings that normally go unnoticed— a glimpse of the bookshelf, or the manhole cover she walks over on her route to the grocery store. She makes every mark by hand, without shortcuts. In fact, Cole will hand-paint one of her artworks directly onto the gallery wall.

The Elephantine in the Anthropocene: Kelsey merreck Wagner

JUlY 6 - JanUarY 12, 2019, CommUnitY gallerY

In Africa, elephants are killed every 15 minutes for their tusks. Wagner’s exhibition explores historic hunting practices in African countries, the ivory trade in Asia, and how modern conservation is working to save the species. Cultural sensitivity and interdisciplinary collaboration are necessary to stop this ecological crisis. While humans are the invasive species, they can also be part of the solution.

Ensuring a Bright Future for An Appalachian Summer Festival... Become a festival Supporter!

Artistic excellence, accessibility, and audience engagement make An Appalachian Summer Festival unique. Because the festival is committed to affordable ticket prices, revenues from ticket sales cover only about 43% of its annual costs. Private support from festival donors must fill the gap in order to ensure a continued commitment to both quality programming and affordable ticket pricing.

Ways You Can help!

• Attend festival events and share the magic of AppSummer with friends and family.

• Become a festival supporter! For ways to give, visit appsummer.org/support. Enjoy donor benefits that include complimentary festival tickets and VIP parking privileges.

• Consider making an endowment gift. Providing long-term financial security for the festival means creating a strong endowment. We need festival patrons to step forward by making an outright gift, or a planned gift, to ensure continuation of programming our audiences value. Gifts may be specifically targeted to programming you wish to support, and can also carry the names of the donor(s), or be designated in honor of or in memory of a friend or family member. 34
