In addition to the hundreds of events programmed each year by the arts institutions and departments, Arts at Emory also offers several special series on an annual and biannual basis.
Since their inauguration in 1980, the Ellmann Lectures have become a vital part of the intellectual fabric of Emory. This biennial series brings world class writers and thinkers to Emory to deliver a series of lectures on modern literature.
The Donna and Marvin Schwartz Foundation Artist-in-Residence program at Emory seeks to increase substantially the depth, diversity, and profile of performing arts education in the Emory and greater-Atlanta communities by providing opportunities for meaningful contact with performing artists, composers, and art scholars from throughout the world.
The Goldwasser Series in Religion and Arts is intended to keep alive for generations of students the appreciation of art and faith as enriching dimensions of the human spirit.
