A holiday message

To the VCUarts community,

In the spirit of this holiday season, I want to pause and acknowledge how deeply appreciative I am to be part of our creative community. Every day, I am inspired by the innovative pursuits of our students, faculty, staff and alumni, as you strive to address the challenges of tomorrow. I am proud to be part of a community that constantly works to elevate one another as artists and as humans.

Let us continue to work to make VCUarts a place where creative minds can come together—where we encourage one another to explore new frontiers, and where we support our talented colleagues, peers and friends.

Thank you for all you do to make VCUarts a place of limitless possibility. I’m excited to see where the coming year will take us.

Happy holidays,
Shawn Brixey
