Art education organization lands at the University of Alabama TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – UnArts, an organization that strives to provide a safe and inclusive environment for everyone to participate in artistic expression, has established a chapter at the University of Alabama. UnArts began research on the possibility of having a chapter at Alabama in March of this year. After discovering that many of the University’s students and members of the surrounding community did not receive enough art education, UnArts knew they would make a perfect fit into the UA community. Students quickly became involved with the organization, and Cody Schmidt, a sophomore dance major, stepped up to assume the position of President. SOUNDBITE: Schmidt (Sch-MIT) (14 seconds) “Artistic expression is terrifying for first-time presenters, but UnArts will provide non-traditional artists with a positive venue with freedom of expression without criticism. Also, UnArts will provide a great opportunity for diabled individuals.” UnArts is named after the idea that underappreciated, unknown and unique artistic expression should be equally welcomed into society. It will allow individuals to explore diverse art styles and perform or present their own work. ###
