Wright State celebrates a quarter of a century showcasing students’ artistic talents

Wright State University’s ArtsGala, one of the Dayton region’s most festive and unique arts events, returned to the Creative Arts Center on April 6 with an impressive program featuring student performances in theatre, dance, motion pictures, music and visual arts.

ArtsGala celebrated its 25th year with many special events designed to commemorate the occasion, including hundreds of student performers.

“This is a premier event in Dayton,” said Gary Schmidt, Ph.D., dean of the Wright State College of Liberal Arts. “Our students are really talented. They come from the region and from around the country.”

ArtsGala has raised almost $4 million in scholarships for Wright State’s fine and performing arts students over the past two decades.

Miranda Morrissette, a sophomore acting major and an ArtsGala Scholarship recipient, said the scholarship allows her to focus on her work and pursue her passion for acting.

“It’s so exciting to get to share what we work on in this building,” said Morrissette.
