Arts Programs and Lectures

Each year Guilford presents programs in music, the performing arts and public affairs for students, faculty and staff. The College presents departmental lectures such as the Sheridan Simon Lecture (physics), the James L. Fleming Lecture (peace and conflict studies) and the Rembert W. Patrick Lecture (history).

Since 1996, the Bryan Series has been creating community conversation with an annual series of lectures in the arts, humanities and public affairs. Events are held in the Greensboro Coliseum. Recent visitors have included President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Garry Trudeau, Yo-Yo Ma, Christiane Amanpour, Salman Rushdie and Khaled Hosseini.
