While Dr. Sparks’ legacy in the visual and performing arts is perpetually on display through the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts, Duke Hall Gallery of Fine Arts, and the Lisanby Museum, he was also deeply committed to supporting a range of scholarly activities that you might not see in a gallery or hear on a stage. As part of commemorating the George E. Sparks College of Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship Endowment, the symposium shows the breadth of student and faculty research Dr. Sparks supported through CVPA Undergraduate Research Grants and CVPA Faculty Summer Grants, initiatives that have evolved into CVPA Development Grants.
