Arts on the Grounds

Arts on the Grounds creates intersections of literature and the performing arts. Events have included modern interpretations of classical theater and site-specific productions designed for the Clark grounds. The program engages a broad new range of audiences and brings the Library’s rich collections to life through performance. The 2014–15 Arts on the Grounds series was made possible with support from Catherine Glynn Benkaim and Barbara Timmer, Mark Rabinowitz, UCLA’s Office of the Dean of Humanities, and the UCLA Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
