Together, we can bolster the arts with our loyal support!
The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Mississippi is a cultural treasure to be enjoyed and supported. With an assortment of Broadway shows, concerts, ballet and more, the Ford Center is the premier entertainment venue in our area.
In a normal year, ticket sales for Gertrude C. Ford Center performances help maintain the facility and cover its operating expenses. That will not be the case in the 2020-21 season. Today, you can help ensure that the Ford Center is able to continue providing high-quality performances for all ages throughout the year.
The Ford Center is worthy of your investments. Consider:
- With an assortment of Broadway shows, concerts, ballet and more, the Ford Center is the premier entertainment venue in our area. Each year, the curtain rises on a wide variety of high-quality performances chosen to enchant and delight audiences. Superstar opera singer Renée Fleming and the iconic American rock band the Beach Boys will be part of the exciting 2021 season. Top-level artists like these are only possible with individual or corporate sponsorships.
- The travel website Expedia included Oxford, Mississippi, in its list of America’s Most Artistic Towns. The magnificent Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts was mentioned, along with the popular Oxford Conference for the Book, Oxford Art Crawl and Double Decker Festival.
- The Celebrating the Arts campaign features a solid bronze grove of trees reflecting donors’ support in the lobby of the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts. Various leaves and boughs are available for purchase and are engraved with donors’ names. You can add your name proudly to this beautiful artwork today and express your belief in the value of the arts.
- Private funding bridges the gap of ticket revenue and the cost of bringing stellar programming to the state and region.
The arts are a vital part of our vibrant campus and surrounding area, and your support is essential to ensure that you, your friends, family and neighbors can continue to enjoy all the benefits that come with a thriving creative community.
On Giving Day, we prove that the University of Mississippi family is better together. Let’s all work as one to support the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts. Together, WE are Ole Miss.
