The Arts of Respect is an annual arts festival conceived as a means of addressing prejudice and hatred while promoting respect and empathy through the arts.  The centerpiece of Arts of Respect is the competition in which Drew students are challenged to explore and express their thoughts and feelings about these issues through virtually any medium in the performing, literary and visual arts.  In its first three seasons the competition drew more than one hundred and fifty original works, entries submissions from students in all three schools of the university and from local high schools.

This year, from March 22-April 2, visual works of art will be on display in the Library Lobby, with an opening reception to be held on March 22 at 4pm.
