The Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series began as the Lyceum Series in 1903 when UNT was North Texas Normal College. The series has grown over the past century while never losing sight of its purpose. In all our endeavors, we hope to enrich UNT students' lives and provide a higher quality of life here at North Texas. As the Fine Arts Series enters its 111th season, we hope to entertain and educate our campus community by presenting an exciting series of performing, visual, and literary arts events. All UNT Fine Arts Series performances are presented free of charge to UNT students.
