Participate in ACE

Participate as a Committee Member


The Arts and Cultural Events (ACE) Series committee consists of student, staff, and faculty with a staff facilitator. Committee members make suggestions for the direction that the series take during the year and may make initial contacts with possible performers. The staff person researches possibilities and presents findings to the committee. Suggested performers are narrowed down by the committee by consensus and the staff person negotiates contracts with chosen artists and makes arrangements for the performance.

Students, staff, and faculty with an interest in the fine arts and in bringing quality and challenging artists and lecturers to WCU are invited to apply to be on the committee. An effort is made to include graduate and non-traditional students with a wide variety of artistic interests. Those wishing to apply may request an application.  Committee members are expected to participate in the decisions regarding all art forms, not just those in their particular field of interest.

Suggesting an artist
Faculty, staff, and students are invited to suggest performers for the series. To do so, please give the name of the artist to either a committee member or the staff person to be researched or supply more information such as CDs, DVDs, books, videos, reviews, etc. for consideration.

The committee begins meeting in the fall to discuss possibilities for the current and future series. For information on applying or information on ACE please contact Francis Ann Ortiz-Pineda at
