2 ARTS+IDEAS 2018–2019 I am excited to introduce Chico State’s 2018–19 Arts+Ideas. This year, we invite you to explore all that Chico State has to offer through Chico Performances, School of the Arts, North State Symphony, University Lecture Series, The Janet Turner Print Museum and University galleries, Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology, and Gateway Science Museum. Art, in all its many forms, can uncover new ways of thinking, feeling, and believing. It can serve as expression and exploration, and as a celebration of beauty and diversity. In the spirit of community, I hope you will join us for an exhibition, lecture, or performance. Together, we will share in new and exciting artistic discoveries! We acknowledge that CSU, Chico stands on the ancestral and unceded land of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of the Maidu People. We recognize their long history on this land and we pledge ourselves to work with the Mechoopda as one community for the advancement and prosperity of all. Gayle E.
